Transport Equipment Manufacturing

Catalysing Growth Through Research for Transport Equipment Manufacturing

This project is a partnership between the University of Derby’s Institute for Innovation in Sustainable Engineering (IISE) and The iNet @ Loughborough University (formerly Transport iNet). The project will use ERDF funding to support SMEs who wish to improve existing products or develop new products, processes and services.

Businesses must be engaged in the general area of transport equipment manufacturing and/or associated supply chains and be based in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership area (D2N2 LEP). The support includes a mixture of:

  • Fully-funded access to expertise and co-operation with university research centres and institutes
  • Part-funding (grant) towards external costs of innovation projects.

It will make it easier for SMEs to work with research institutes and accelerate their development and implementation of new products, processes and services.
A Collaborative R&D (CRD) programme led by a D2N2-based SME and involving UK-based universities or research institutes will run in parallel, calls are open for proposals.

The programme will operate from July 2016 through to June 2019.
