Project summary

The University of Bath Institute for Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS) will be a global centre of excellence, delivering transformational research and innovation. It will lead the development of future generations of ultra-low emission vehicles and is scheduled to open in early 2020.

The Institute will attract sector related businesses to the region and generate significant economic growth, including 1,900 new highly productive jobs.

Specialist facilities will make IAAPS a hub for training and skills development, as well as enlarging a competitive South West automotive cluster by supporting small and medium-sized businesses, and regional start-ups.

The development of IAAPS has been led by the University of Bath, working in partnership with global companies and local businesses, the Automotive Council and the Advanced Propulsion Centre.
