High Volume Transport

Vital transport research to ensure accessible, affordable and climate friendly transport for all.

T-TRIID: Funding new thinking to create transport for tomorrow

A new competition funding innovation to improve transport in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) has been launched by the High Volume Applied Transport Research Programme (HVT).

Transport is critical for growing economies, overcoming poverty and ensuring people access vital services such as healthcare and education. Yet in recent years we’ve seen infrastructures buckle under intense pressures such as the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change, particularly in LMICs. To meet these challenges, we need to think and act differently.

This Transport-Technology Research and Innovation for International Development (T-TRIID) funding asks businesses, institutions and universities to bring forward ideas that need further research but could hold the key to unlocking sustainable, safer, greener and inclusive transport.
