The Transport-Technology Research Innovation for International Development (T-TRIID) Fund sponsored by DFID High Volume Transport 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
Up to 10 projects are expected to receive funding of around £30,000.
The application process has been designed to be simple and easy to complete. Collaborations across companies and from within beneficiary countries are encouraged and will gain extra credit in the assessment.
The competition opens on 5 July 2018 and closes on 16 August 2018.
