What is the Niche Vehicle Network?

Supported by the Department for Business and Trade, Innovate UK, and the Advanced Propulsion Centre, NVN provides a collaborative R&D Programme supporting innovative, SME-led projects focusing on developing and demonstrating zero tailpipe emission vehicle technologies in niche vehicle applications, with an emphasis on vehicle electrification, zero emissions and light-weighting.

NVN also facilitates collaboration and knowledge sharing, providing its members with the opportunity to network and showcase innovation to the industry at a variety of its own and industry events.
