DfT Innovation Grants previously helped to fund the ‘Wayfindr’ project (https://www.wayfindr.net) – using technology to help visually impaired people travel. New technologies and ideas drive the UK’s transport sector forward – increasing capacity, improving safety and making journeys better. One of the mechanisms we use to support technology innovation in the transport sector is grant schemes. The Transport Technology Research Innovation Grant (T-TRIG) competition provides seed funding to early-stage science, engineering or technology innovations that have the potential to advance the UK’s transport system.
