The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) invests up to £30 million, 3 times a year, in collaborative research and development (R&D) projects. These are pre-production match-funded projects. In this round APC is investing £30 million.

Your project must concentrate on the automotive market as its primary application. APC 15 is looking for:

  • projects that support the UK’s long-term capabilities through securing long-term R&D investment;

Your project will preferably deliver both, to ensure the UK meets the future demand of vehicle-makers.
