How to Take Part

The FTVG invites applications from emerging career professionals across the transport industry.

Key Stages - Here’s how you can take part:


Expression of Interest March - April 2024

You can submit your details and an early outline of your idea using the form on this site. This will help us form you into groups of people with similar interests and ideas who can collaboratively take an idea forward. The deadline for this year’s expressions of interest is April 26th.


Collaboration Forums May 2024

We will organise a series of online forums which will let you meet other applicants with similar ideas and help you form cross-industry teams to develop particular projects and ideas. These will be held at the beginning of May to enable time for your Project Application to be completed.


Project Application May 2024

We will ask project teams to provide an abstract, methodology, and estimated costs for undertaking their chosen project. These will be considered by our steering group who will decide which teams to award funding to this year. The deadline for this year’s project applications is May 30th.


Project Execution July 2024 - March 2025

Teams successfully awarded funding will be given four months to develop their project. Your progress and spending will be monitored by our steering group.


Project Completion Apr 2025 - May 2025

We will invite all successful project teams to present their findings and outcomes at online forums and help to promote your ideas to the wider industry.


Project Award May 2025

A prize will be awarded for “Outstanding Project” at a conference to be announced, judged by our steering group panel.

Project selection criteria

Projects will be assessed for funding allocations based on their ability to meet the objectives of the initiative, as well as considering the level of funding required.

Award criteria

Successfully funded projects will be considered for the Outstanding Project Award at the conclusion of the initiative. This will be given to the team that has developed the most insightful and impactful project.
