    Digital event (via Zoom)

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 efficiency, reliability and safety of services and infrastructure and economy. At the same time, data based solutions contribute to reducing the use of resources and tackle climate change. Citizens can greatly benefit from data-based solutions, which can enable seamless multimodal traffic, increase safety and improve the mobility experience in all types of environments.

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 of Transport and Digital Infrastructure has initiated a European dialogue on examples for data innovations in the mobility field across Europe.

To continue this knowledge exchange and to facilitate new partnerships between European projects and actors, the BMVI mFUND programme has established a new online workshops series on Data Innovations for Smart Mobility. Until the end of 2021, six events on different transportation topics will be implemented.

Workshop No. 1:

(Open)Data for enhanced and inclusive mobility options for European citizens

The first workshop in the series features (Open)Data for enhanced and inclusive mobility options for European citizens as a central theme.

To create free, safe and independent mobility for all citizens, inclusion plays a key role in European transport and mobility systems. The use of data opens new opportunities to address the mobility needs of different groups to favour more inclusive and flexible mobility solutions.

Experts in the field will have the opportunity to exchange on ideas and experiences with other experts or interested parties. Inspiring examples of data innovations for improved, inclusive and safe mobility in Europe will be presented and discussed.

We look forward to your participation!
