Cenex, BIS, Technology Strategy Board and Carbon Trust are giving 15 SME and micro-enterprises the chance to showcase their low carbon vehicle technology for one day at the LCV2013 event, taking place in Millbrook on September 4-5, 2013.
The aim of the technology showcase is to raise awareness of grass roots innovation and potentially game changing technologies being pioneered by UK-based SME and micro-enterprises.
It will enable participating companies to promote themselves to industry leaders from vehicle manufacturers through to Tier 1 suppliers and universities.
Irrespective of the outcomes of the competition, the Technology Strategy Board – the UK’s innovation agency - will help to promote the applicants by hosting the applicants’ Powerpoint summaries on its website.
The opportunity is ideally suited for companies who have not exhibited at an LCV event before.
The 15 companies selected to participate at this year’s event will receive full exhibitor benefits.
Applicants should complete an application form and a company Powerpoint presentation.
These will be assessed on: technology proposition, level of innovation, exploitation and endorsement, how they will use the showcasing opportunity and the value of exhibiting at LCV2013, by June 21, 2013.
Successful applicants will be announced on July 1.
Robert Evans (pictured), CEO of Cenex said: “LCV2013 provides excellent showcasing and networking opportunities for SME’s and micro-enterprises as we are expecting over 2,000 visitors including industry experts and government officials.
"We fully support this technology showcasing opportunity as innovation in low carbon vehicle technology is essential for the future of LCV’s.”
