The Transport Technology Research Innovation Grant (T-TRIG) funds early-stage research projects into innovative ideas or concepts to help create a better transport system.

It is part of the Department for Transport’s Innovation Grant funding.

The purpose of the scheme is to:

  • reduce barriers to innovation and advance technology in transport
  • enable a better transport system in the UK
  • exploit smart ideas that have the potential to develop further
  • fund early stage innovations to take to the next stage of development

The scheme funds research into a wide-range of novel and innovative solutions that use science, engineering and technology to advance the UK’s transport system.

T-TRIG competitions

 This round of T-TRIG has 3 separate calls:

  • an open call for novel and innovative ideas focused on transport
  • a targeted call on maritime autonomy, technology and solutionsto reduce shipping emissions call
  • a targeted call on using big data and machine learning to improve the UK’s road network

How to apply

T-TRIG is open to any UK organisation, typically micro, small and medium-sized businesses or academia to support research projects which could lead to the development of successful new transport products, processes or services.
