The Automotive Transformation Fund (ATF) is a new Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) programme that aims to establish a competitive and sustainable UK supply chain.
It offers a share of up to £1 billion of funding for capital and associated industrial research projects. This will be to support the industrialisation of a high value, electrified automotive supply at scale in the UK.
This is an expression of interest (EoI) competition, which is the first stage in a two stage process. The EoI application outlines organisations proposals and potential benefits to the UK. If the application is successful, the organisation will be invited to progress to a full application for the ATF competition.
An organisations total eligible project costs and project duration must be strongly aligned to the Automotive Transformation Fund.
Competition opens: Friday 30 July 2021
Competition closes: Wednesday 18 August 2021 11:00am
