Fund Name: tackling non-exhaust and non-road vehicle air pollution
Project Length: Up to 3 months
Project Value: Up to £300k
Deadline: 16/01/2019


This competition is looking to procure R&D services for technologies that address air quality issues caused by one or more of:

  • emissions which come from brake and tyre wear, or from road surface abrasion
  • vehicles or transportable industrial equipment used on construction sites not intended for carrying passengers on the road but equipped with a combustion engine
  • refrigeration systems designed to cool perishable products transported by road in vehicles including vans or heavy goods vehicles

If practical we will employ a portfolio approach to fund a range of projects from all 3 themes.

Fund Details

The overall programme will be delivered in 2 phases. This is phase 1. A decision to proceed with phase 2 will depend on the outcomes from phase 1. Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be able to apply to take part in phase 2.

In phase 1 projects can range in size up to a total cost of £50,000 each, including VAT. Projects must start by the end of April 2019, be completed before the end of July 2019 and can last up to 3 months. Phase 1 is focused on supporting feasibility studies. These should result in a technical and commercial specification, detailed design package and test plan for a technical solution.
