We're partnering with innovators to accelerate solutions that will help solve Aotearoa New Zealand's transport challenges. The challenges align with the Government Policy Statement on land transport 2021 and the Transport Outcomes Framework.
The challenges will focus on key transport priorities such as encouraging mode shift, increasing accessible and equitable transport options, decarbonising freight, improving road safety outcomes, optimising the network, and reducing maintenance spend.
The challenges have deliberately been designed to have a narrow focus. This provides clarity to the sector about the specific problem we are wanting to solve and the ability to measure the impact the innovation may deliver more easily.
While the format of the programme won’t change, nor the eligibility criteria, each funding round will publish new challenges to be solved.
