Companies are invited to submit proposals to support their training projects which will improve the company’s ability to meet its own growth plans, and also contribute to the success of the vehicle manufacturers it supplies to.
This funding call builds on an earlier investment opportunity for auto supply chain companies (which ran from 6 May 2014 to 25 July 2014.)
There are two main enhancements to the new offer:
- We have lowered the minimum grant value to £40,000.
- And as a result of changes to State Aid regulations, we’ve included trainees’ wages as eligible costs.
This funding call is open from 3 November 2014 to 6 February 2015.
