What is it?

The Low Emission Transport Collaborative Project Fund provides grant funding for R&D, near market collaborative projects between SMEs and research or technology partners based in the North East. The £2 million fund offers grants of between £50,000 and £300,000 towards the cost of bringing new products to market in the field of low emission transport and infrastructure development.

The fund aims to further advance the North East as a leader in the production of low carbon vehicles. It is designed to support business growth, new product development and the creation of new employment opportunities in the region’s low carbon sector.

The Low Emission Transport Collaborative Projects Fund is supported by the Regional Growth Fund. The fund is managed by Gateshead College and Zero Carbon Futures and administered by New Skills Consulting.
