India-UK inks MoU for Net Zero transport systems
The collaboration will also offer a "soft-landing" for UK SMEs interested in the Indian market and provide opportunities for SMEs and start-ups in India, enabling them to develop, test, and export solutions that help decarbonise transport. By adopting a perspective across the whole transport and energy system, ITES will consider the multiple solutions needed to deliver cleaner seas, skies, roads and railways, testing technologies and exploring pathways for sustainable and clean transport, such as electric and hydrogen solutions, that are reliable, affordable, and acceptable to businesses and consumers. The initiative is one of the first to be announced following a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) recently signed by UK and India Science Ministers in Westminster, aimed at boosting science and innovation and driving economic growth across the two countries. The ITES collaboration will help SMEs tackle scalability with go-to-market support and access to potential clients, funders, and investment.
