What does this involve?

The Sustainable Mobility Cluster Builder is a new programme that helps SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) in Scotland make the most of new opportunities in sustainable transport. This also supports the Scottish Government's targets to decarbonise transport.

The cluster builder programme includes:   

  • awareness raising and networking events 
  • one-to-one support sessions with expert advisors  
  • opportunities to connect with other businesses in Scotland and beyond  
  • signposting to further opportunities, funding and business support  

The programme is delivered by Urban Foresight, funded by Scottish Enterprise and in partnership with Transport Scotland. The project is 50% ERDF funded through the Scottish Programme for Research Innovation and Technology Ecosystem (known as SPRITE).
