Would you like to register for the next event in our DRIVEN by DATA workshop series? Then please write an e-mail to with the subject: "EU Workshop X/24", whereas X has to be replaced with the workshop number (e.g. 7/24, 8/24 etc). You will receive a link to a virtual meeting room shortly before the event. Join the new DRIVEN by DATA linkedin group for regular updates.

Data has become an important driver in all areas of our modern society and its importance is increasing every day. Data is the basis for most digital innovations. It offers enormous potential for new business models and products.

In the transport sector, digital technologies and data are used on a large scale to increase the efficiency, reliability and safety of services and infrastructure. At the same time, data-based solutions contribute to reducing the use of resources and to tackling climate change. Citizens can greatly benefit from data-based solutions, which can enable seamless multimodal traffic, increase safety and improve the mobility experience in many different settings.

With the virtual conference “Open Data for Smart Mobility in Europe”, held under the auspices of the German EU Council Presidency on 17 November 2020, the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (formerly the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure) has initiated a European dialogue on examples of data innovations in the mobility field across Europe.

To continue this knowledge exchange and to facilitate new partnerships between European projects and actors, the BMDV mFUND programme has established an online workshop series on “Data Innovations for Smart Mobility”.

By the end of 2022, 14 online workshops had been held. From 2023, the format will be called "DRIVEN by DATA". Once again, we are inviting experts to present their research and innovation projects in short presentations. Networking and discussions in breakout rooms complete the event.
