The competition will have two phases. Phase 1 is intended to show the technical feasibility of the proposed concept. The development contracts placed will be for a maximum of 6 months and up to £30,000 (inc. VAT) per project. A total of up to £150k (inc VAT) is allocated to phase 1. Phase 2 contracts are intended to develop and evaluate prototypes or demonstrators from the more promising technologies in Phase 1, and it is anticipated that funding will be up to £150,000 (inc VAT) per project. A total of up to £300k (inc VAT) is allocated to Phase 2 . At this stage contracts will be let for Phase 1 only. Phase 2 is dependent upon successful completion of Phase 1 and may be awarded to selected Phase 1 contractors.
Applicants should state their goals and outline plan for Phase 2, as an explicit part of the path to full commercial implementation, in their Phase 1 proposal.
