    Digital event (via Zoom)

In the mobility sector data is collected from a wide variety of sources ranging from vehicle sensors to user patterns, which makes the use of mobility data very challenging owing to its heterogeneity, volume, and variable quality. The benefits of tackling these challenges are great. The harmonisation and standardisation of the collection and processing of data can facilitate the use of data and thus support a more rapid transition to a greener and more sustainable mobility and transport sector in Europe. Furthermore, harmonisation and standardisation can enable new business models to emerge and at the same time improv the quality, safety and number of mobility and transport options for citizens and goods.

Invited speakers and interested parties will have the opportunity to discuss the challenges involved in harmonising and standardising mobility data. Topics such as the availability, collection, processing, use and governance of such data, together with examples of the role of standardisation in innovative solutions will be the focus of the discussion. Cross-border issues and needs will also be discussed.

You are very welcome to share your knowledge and ideas during the event.

We look forward to your participation!

To register, please send an email with the subject "EU Knowledge Exchange – workshop 8" to mFUND@bmdv.bund.de.

You will receive a link to a virtual meeting room shortly before the event.

About the online mFUND-Workshop series “Data Innovations for Smart Mobility in Europe”

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 for Digital and Transport 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 BMDV mFUND programme has established a new online workshops series on Data Innovations for Smart Mobility. Six events on different transportation topics have taken place since the summer of 2021 and the series will continue in 2022.
