£35 Million Available For Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Through New Competition

The Centre for Connected & Autonomous Vehicles(CCAV) and Innovate UK are inviting businesses to apply for innovation project funding of up to £35 million.

Projects need to come up with technical solutions for connected and autonomous vehicle features. These features should provide real-world benefits to users. This includes how these vehicles will work as part of a wider transport system. Proposals must show a clear commercial benefit.

Funding for this competition comes from CCAV (up to £30 million) and Innovate UK (£5 million).

The Centre for Connected & Autonomous Vehicles is a joint policy unit. It was set up by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and the Department for Transport. The aim of CCAV is to help ensure that the UK is a world leader in developing and testing connected and autonomous vehicles.
