DfT’s Transport Research an Innovation Grants (TRIG) scheme is open for new proposals until the 14th of November. TRIG funds early stage; proof-of-concept innovation across transport and is designed to maximise SME involvement by not requiring match funding, having low-burden processes, funding up front. TRIG also provides innovators with commercial support to maximise exploitation opportunities through collaboration with the Connected Places Catapult and allows successful teams to engage with policy makers in DfT. The scheme can fund up to 48 projects with grants of £30k each and further 5 projects with up to £100k in the Future of Freight theme. TRIG focuses funding on DfT priorities such as Maritime Decarbonisation and Covid-19 recovery and Resilience, but also includes an open call which can fund any technology idea which can improve transport. If you need funding to try out something novel which will make the transport system better click bellow.
