APC Technology Developer Accelerator Programme for automotive industry

19 September 2019

The APC Technology Developer Accelerator Programme (TDAP) supports micro, small and medium-sized companies that are developing technology, products and services which are relevant to the automotive industry.

The programme targets Technology Developers (TDs) with early-stage (TRL 1-4) low emission vehicle innovations.

The TDAP programme is a four-phase, 18 month process that supports TDs as they develop their idea from concept towards a viable market proposition. TDAP supports TDs with industry experts who help prioritise routes to market, protect their intellectual property and validate their technology.

The innovative solutions developed should align with the automotive councils 5 strategic technologies, or be outside of these areas but demonstrating a strong impact potential (for example, developments that enable the accelerated advancement of low emission vehicle technologies). On or off-vehicle technology can be developed through the programme.
