The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) has launched the fifth wave of its Technology Developer Accelerator Programme (TDAP), with financial support of up to £135,000 available to accelerate the commercialisation of green automotive technologies.
The competition is open to micro, small and medium-sized enterprises who are working to develop on or off-vehicle technology, products or services that support either zero-emission vehicle development or the shift to net-zero carbon automotive products.
Supporting innovators over 18 months, TDAP aims to bring new technologies from concept to market viable proposition, while providing SMEs with business guidance and access to industry experts.
Josh Denne, head of SME programmes at the APC, said: “Since its pilot launch in 2015, TDAP has been instrumental in breaking down barriers to the commercialisation of promising low-carbon innovations being developed by UK-based SMEs.
"Our latest round is welcoming applications from developers who are at the early stages of product development and we look forward to working with them to bring their idea to life”.
Technology developers can express their interest in applying for TDAP Wave 5 by visiting the website.
The APC is issuing application packs to eligible applicants on an ongoing basis.
The closing date for applications is April 14, 2021, with a target programme start date of July 2021.
