Enabling UK SMEs to grow and prosper

We recognise the UK has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in its SMEs, which are important in building a vibrant supply chain. The Technology Developer Accelerator Programme (TDAP) supports SMEs, whether start-ups, spin-outs or more mature organisations, who have an early-stage transport technology concept and want to accelerate their route to market.

‘SMEs play a crucial role in the low-carbon future of the automotive industry; by supporting companies at the beginning of their commercialisation journey we can ensure the UK stays competitive with some of the most exciting technological innovation in the sector.’
