Shaping R,D&D in Transport Energy

Project Brief:

The UK has a strong research and development capability in both the private and public sector. In the vehicle technology sector this has been harnessed to help support a growth agenda. The objective of this project will be to ensure R,D&D in transport energy helps drive growth and develop UK capabilities required to deliver GHG savings, sustainability and jobs in transport energy. The LowCVP, working with the fuels and automotive sectors, has developed a suite of roadmaps covering vehicle technology, fuels and infrastructure.

  2. LowCVP members and the wider stakeholder community will be surveyed to develop recommendations for future funding calls.
  3. LowCVP staff and members will provide expert advice to funding bodies in the development of funding calls.
