Competition to fund innovative projects to improve High Volume Transport in Africa and South Asia open until 16 August.

The Transport-Technology Research Innovation for International Development (T-TRIID) competition is now open from today [5 July 2018] and will close on 16 August 2018.

Under the Applied Research Programme in High Volume Transport (HVT), this competition will fund short projects supporting innovative and novel ideas that enable safer and more efficient transport in various countries across low income countries of Africa and South Asia. The programme is implemented by IMC Worldwide, supported by KTN and funded by the Department for International Development (DFID)

The competition provides funding up to £30,000 for 10 collaborative projects which show potential to address transport challenges in the following themes: long distance strategic road and rail, urban transport, low carbon transport and gender, accessibility and inclusion (particularly the disabled) in HVT.

Magdalena Leisten Johansson, DFID HVT Advisor said: “The research programme supports individuals and organisations to identify and share innovative concepts and solutions to the challenges facing transport sector in Low Income Countries. T-TRIID is not about ideas but about making those ideas happen.”
