The programme is delivered across two waves of SPF funding.

Wave 1 focussed on near-term outdoor air pollution issues and the funded projects will leverage existing long term strategic investments in order to develop short-term policy relevant outputs, support commercialisation of near-market solutions for non-exhaust transport emissions and deliver a pilot systems framework for clean air analysis

Wave 2 aims to equip the UK to proactively tackle new and emerging air quality challenges related to changing emissions and exposure patterns and health impacts on groups of people most at risk.
