The UK Government has opened the Automotive Transformation Fund to support the industrialisation of a high value, electrified automotive supply at scale in the UK.
Managed through Innovate UK, this fund will provide support for projects involving the latest technology in batteries, electric motors and drives, power electronics, fuel cells, and recycling.
It offers a share of up to £1billion of funding for capital and associated industrial research projects.
This is an expression of interest (EoI) competition, which is the first stage in a two stage process. Your EoI application outlines your proposal and potential benefits to the UK. If your application is successful, you will be invited to progress to a full application for the ATF competition.
To lead a project your organisation must:
- be a business of any size
- carry out its project work in the UK
- exploit the results from or in the UK.
This round of funding will be open to single applicants and collaborations. There are no restrictions on the number of applications a business can lead or collaborate on. Previous applicants can submit a maximum of two applications.
The fund will be open to expressions of interest from 9.30am on the 6th December 2021 until 11:00am on the 12th January 2022.
