What does this involve?

The Zero Emission Mobility Innovation Fund (ZEMIF) provides discretionary grants to Scottish-based companies to help them manufacture and deploy zero-emission niche and heavy-duty vehicle (HDV) components, systems and vehicles that will help to reduce the carbon emissions of HDVs in Scotland and globally.

The 2 main strands of the fund are:

  • Innovation2Manufacture - for research and development (R&D) projects focused on enabling the manufacture of prototype zero emission vehicles, components and systems, through to small scale manufacturing
  • Innovation2Deployment - for R&D projects aimed at the rapid testing of new transport ideas using technology, business model, software, and financial innovation

Scottish Enterprise and Transport Scotland have developed this fund to encourage collaboration and clustering of innovation activity, near-to-market innovation and commercialisation that will support net zero ambitions in Scotland's transport sector.

  • scale manufacturing of a prototype or try out existing technologies in new ways to support transport decarbonisation
  • use existing technology in an innovative way
  • manufacture or scale up manufacturing of a proven prototype of a zero-emission component, system or vehicle

Collaborative and single applicant projects are both eligible.

All applicants are subject to a due diligence check on ownership and finances.

What does this cost?

It is free to apply for this fund.

Transport and manufacturing supply chain businesses in Scotland.
