CPI is speaking at the IDP15 & Faraday Battery Challenge R&D Round 3 Joint Competition Briefing.

IDP15 & Faraday Battery Challenge R&D Round 3 Joint Competition Briefing: 9.30am-2pm

This joint briefing event is an opportunity for the complimentary technologies of ultra-low / zero emission vehicles and batteries for automotive applications, to hear about the respective funding competitions. During the event delegates will hear from UK Research and Innovation, representatives of the UK’s battery sector and the Office for Low Emission Vehicles. Following this will be the main competition briefing sessions that will be held in parallel, in separare rooms. Delegates will then reconvene to hear a presentation on the Innovate UK application process as well as a joint pitch session. IDP15: This event marks the latest competition in the IDP series. Supporting IDP15 is a multimillion pound investment by The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV). UK businesses can apply for a share of the available funding to develop zero emission vehicle technologies. As the delivery partner, Innovate UK will manage all new and innovative IDP15 projects that contribute to economic growth and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution on our roads. At the event you will hear about the scope of IDP15, which includes a dedicated focus around Power Electronics, Machines and Drives. Faraday Battery Challenge R&D Round 3: This event marks the third round of R&D funding under the Faraday Battery Challenge. It completes the first phase of funding directed towards the development of cost-effective, high-performance, durable, safe, low-weight and recyclable batteries. Building on the success of projects funded through Rounds 1 and 2, this further investment under the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund is aimed at ensuring that the UK leads the world in the design, development and manufacture of batteries for the electrification of vehicles. A particular strength of joining competition briefings will be the significant opportunity delegates will have to network with organisations from across the automotive supply chain. You will also have the chance to engage with Innovate UK directly. This event is aimed and businesses of all sizes (micro, SME and large) academics, RTOs and local authorities with an interest in ultra-low or zero emission vehicles and battery technologies. Organisations who have been involved in any past or current Innovate UK competitions in the automotive space are strongly encouraged to attend.
