The T-TRIG programme has seen a great deal of success. Evaluation has shown that to date, T-TRIG projects have secured more than £25m of follow-on funding from £4.5m invested. Now in its sixth year, the programme is looking for applicants to develop technologies or services in areas that align with the department and cross governmental priorities including those set out in the Government’s Industrial Strategy Grand Challenges – namely, transport innovation, decarbonising the transport system and COVID-19 recovery.
Innovators can be awarded up to £30,000 out of the £710,000 overall grant for their projects which will help them develop their ideas and bring them to market more quickly.
Rachel Maclean MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State said:
“As we continue to follow our greenprint for a transport recovery from Covid-19 it is imperative we work with start-ups at the cutting edge of technology to help us build back more sustainably and today’s competition launch will do exactly that.
“That’s why supporting innovation is a priority for this Government, as we start to travel again safely while also seeking to solve the complex challenge of decarbonising transport.”
The programme welcomes applications from organisations or consortia that can see a role for their technologies, tools and approaches in delivering benefits in this space.
Nicola Yates OBE, Connected Places Catapult CEO said:
“We are excited to launch another open call for the T-TRIG programme. The challenges for this round are pertinent to the challenges we are facing in the UK currently. We look forward to seeing the innovative ideas from organisations and individuals that apply.”
