APC is offering £25mn of collaborative (match) funding for UK-developed late stage R&D to support growth in advanced low carbon propulsion capability in the automotive sector. Eligible projects must include: alternative propulsion systems; electric machines and power electronics; energy storage and management; lightweight vehicles and powertrain structures; and thermal propulsion systems.
