Faraday Battery Challenge: Funding for Research into Automotive Battery Technologies
The Faraday Battery Challenge was launched by Business and Energy Secretary Greg Clark in July 2017 as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF). The Faraday Battery Challenge is an investment of £246 million over four years, set up to help UK businesses seize the opportunities presented by the transition to a low carbon economy and to ensure that the UK leads the world in the design, development and manufacture of batteries for the electrification of vehicles.
The winners of the first round of the Innovation Feasibility Studies and Research and Development competitions and the Scale-up competition were announced by Greg Clark on 29th November 2017.
Innovate UK will be opening the second round of Faraday Battery Challenge: Innovation competitions on 22nd January 2018, with a deadline for applications on 28th March 2018.
