Since 2016, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) has been funding R&D projects related to digital data-based applications for Mobility 4.0 with a research initiative called mFUND. mFUND not only provides financial assistance but, with different event formats, it fosters networking between stakeholders from the political sphere, as well as the business and the research communities. It also promotes access to the mCLOUD data portal.
mFUND supports founders, start-ups, businesses, but also authorities and institutions of higher education. Funding recipients develop digital business ideas that are based on mobility, spatial and weather data. There are two funding lines, which allow long-term support from the initial idea to the development of a prototype. mFUND will provide funding totalling 100 million euros up to the year 2020.
Digital visionaries must be connected with each other and need platforms for a creative exchange. As part of mFUND, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure organizes conferences, bringing together funding recipients. mFUND competitions, such as the BMVI Data-Run or the BMVI Start-up Pitch, are addressed particularly at founders, start-ups and programmers who have innovative ideas for Mobility 4.0.
Via mCLOUD, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure makes available its own mobility, spatial and weather data as well as that of its executive agencies in standardized formats and free of charge. mCLOUD serves as an open research platform, providing central, quick and easy access to data of the Ministry and its executive agencies that is relevant to mobility. The platform is open for data from academia and industry and is being constantly expanded.
mFUND promotes research and development projects that focus on developing possibilities to use and connect the BMVI’s data, for instance through new navigation services, smart journey planners or highly accurate weather apps. Our funding kicks in the moment digital ideas are born and supports funding recipients in realizing these ideas - from the initial concept to the development of a prototype. Details on mFUND projects can be found in the brief project outlines and are only available in German.
