The Applied Research Programme in High Volume Transport (HVT) is running an exciting new competition called Transport-Technology Research Innovation for International Development (T-TRIID).

The competition will fund short projects supporting innovative ideas that enable safer and more efficient transport in countries across low income countries of Africa and South Asia.

The programme is implemented by IMC Worldwide, supported by Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) and funded by the Department for International Development.

Projects should aim to address transport challenges (could be technical, operational or policy) across the following themes:

  • Long distance strategic road and rail transport
  • Urban transport
  • Low carbon transport
  • Gender, accessibility and inclusion (particularly the disabled) in High Volume Transport

You can download all relevant competition documentation from the left sidebar of this page.


The competition is open to all types of businesses including start-ups, small businesses and research organisations from any country in the world.

Participation from low-income countries is particularly encouraged. However, the project itself should aim to address transport challenges in one or more of the following beneficiary countries:

Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burma, China, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, Nepal, Nigeria, Occupied Palestinian Territories, Pakistan, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Uganda, Yemen and Zambia.

How much funding is available?

Up to 10 projects are expected to receive funding of around £30,000.

The application process has been designed to be simple and easy to complete. Collaborations across companies and from within beneficiary countries are encouraged and will gain extra credit in the assessment.

Key dates

The competition opens on 5 July 2018 and closes on 16 August 2018.
