Transport Technology Research Innovation Grant (T-TRIG) 2017

The Transport Technology Research Innovation Grant (T-TRIG) funds early-stage research projects into innovative ideas or concepts to help create a better transport system.

It is part of the Department for Transport’s Innovation Grant funding.

The purpose of the scheme is to:

  • reduce barriers to innovation and advance technology in transport
  • enable a better transport system in the UK
  • exploit smart ideas that have the potential to develop further
  • fund early stage innovations to take to the next stage of development

The scheme funds research into a wide-range of novel and innovative solutions that use science, engineering and technology to advance the UK’s transport system.
