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

Thursday 05 July 2018

The Transport-Technology Research Innovation for International Development (T-TRIID) competition has launched today, 5 July 2018, and will close on Thursday 16 August 2018.

Under the Applied Research Programme in High Volume Transport (HVT), this competition will fund short projects supporting innovative ideas that enable safer and more efficient transport in low-income countries in Africa and South Asia.

The High Volume Transport programme is implemented by IMC Worldwide, supported by Knowledge Transfer Network, and funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

The T-TRIID 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
  • gender, accessibility and inclusion (particularly the disabled) in HVT

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 – Magdalena Leisten Johansson, DFID HVT Advisor
