Fri 20 May 2022 View all news

Niche Vehicle Network has announced that the 2022 Production Readiness Competition is now open for applications. Funded by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) and supported by Innovate UK, this competition provides a platform for collaborative R&D for organisations active in the UK niche and low carbon vehicle technology sector.

The competition is open to niche vehicle manufacturers, system suppliers and design/engineering or technology organisations active in the UK specialist and low volume manufacturing sector who wish to collaborate on innovative, industry-led projects.

Applicants must be able to evidence that an appropriate stage of development or technology readiness has already been achieved to meet the project entry criteria. For Production Readiness projects the consortium should already have demonstrated the concept at first mule or prototype level and are now aiming to take it towards a production-intent level, including demonstration on a zero emission UK niche vehicle.

Please note that applications can only be submitted online through NVN's Funding Gateway, which also contains guidance on how to apply, along with links to provide help if required.

The deadline for bid submission is 5pm, 20th June 2022.


NVN will be holding a virtual briefing and Q&A event for applicants on Thursday 19th May 2022, 12noon-1pm. To attend the event, please register here.
