Your project’s total eligible costs must be between £5 million and £40 million and be 50% match funded.
Organisation
Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC)
Summary

The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) invests up to £30 million, 3 times a year, in collaborative research and development (R&D) projects. These are pre-production match-funded projects. In this round APC is investing £30 million.

Your project must concentrate on the automotive market as its primary application.

APC 16 is looking for:

  • projects that support the UK’s long-term capabilities through securing long-term R&D investment,
  • projects that can be achieved through its associated supply chain in the design, build and manufacture of zero tailpipe emission vehicles

Your project will preferably deliver both of these, to ensure the UK meets the future demand of vehicle-makers.

We welcome projects which demonstrate a significant change in the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and improvements in air quality compared to best in class. This can include technologies such as motors, batteries, power electronics, hybridisation and alternative propulsion systems.

Your project’s total eligible costs must be 50% match funded and between £5 million and £40 million.

Projects can last between 18 and 42 months.

APC is particularly looking for projects that support the UK’s long-term supply chain, associated capabilities and growth aspirations. This includes improving productivity and competitiveness in the design, build and manufacture of vehicles that are capable of low and zero tailpipe emissions, including:

  • motors
  • batteries
  • power electronics
  • hybridisation
  • alternative propulsion systems

Your project must support the growth of these technologies, creating more jobs and capability throughout the UK supply chain.
