TN GO inviting Phase 1 applications

The deadline to submit proposals is February 2.

For decades, Tennessee has led the Southeast in the automotive industry. To build upon this legacy while also working to diversify the state’s economy, it is time to look toward the future.

The Transportation Network Growth Opportunity (TNGO) initiative, under the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development and in partnership with Launch Tennessee and Team Tennessee, is an economic development tool designed to connect statewide research assets, communities, and talent to spark new research and innovation in the sector. More specifically, the TNGO Mobility and Automotive Discovery component is focused on partnering communities, companies, and/or economic development applicants with researchers across the state to provide innovative solutions to the Volunteer State’s most pressing mobility and transportation-related issues.

The deadline for phase one applications is February 2. To learn more and submit a project or need, click here.
