APC 12 is seeking proposals for collaborative R&D projects that demonstrate the development of on-vehicle technologies for on or off-road vehicles. These must either accelerate the development of low and zero tailpipe emission capable technologies, or demonstrate significant changes in the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.
APC is particularly looking for projects that support the UK’s long-term supply chain and associated capabilities, in the design, build and manufacture of low and zero tailpipe-emission capable vehicles.
This includes technologies such as:
Your project must support the growth of these technologies, creating more jobs and capability throughout the UK supply chain.
Your application must have a proven technology idea that will be both technically viable and production ready at the end of the project. You must show:
The project must be directly focused on or relate to one or more of the following technology areas:
To lead a project you must:
To collaborate on a project you must:
