Deadline: 2019-01-09 Award: £300,000 Open to: Organizations of any size*
Organizations can apply to develop new solutions to reduce air pollutant emissions from road vehicle brake or tyre wear, non-road mobile machinery used in construction and transport refrigeration units.
Innovate UK, working on behalf of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), will fund organizations to develop and demonstrate new products or services which reduce the harmful emissions from one or more of:
- Road vehicle brake and tyre wear and/or road surface wear
- Non-road mobile machinery used for construction, such as excavators, bulldozers, front loaders, cranes and compressors
- Transport refrigeration units
The overall programme will be delivered in 2 phases. This is phase 1. A decision to proceed with phase 2 will depend on the outcomes from phase 1. Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be able to apply to take part in phase 2.
In phase 1 projects can range in size up to a total cost of £50,000 each, including VAT. Projects must start by the end of April 2019, be completed before the end of July 2019 and can last up to 3 months.
Phase 2 will be focused on developing a prototype and undertaking field testing to demonstrate the effectiveness of the solution. We plan to fund 3 contracts of up to £1.5 million each, including VAT.
