    Digital event (via Zoom)

Public transport plays a very important role in decongesting streets, reducing CO2 emissions and improving life quality in cities. Furthermore, it supports communities and social equality by providing mobility to all, especially those who do not have access to cars. Changes in public transportation perception and models have been initiated some years ago with the introduction of apps to programme trips and purchase tickets. In recent years, political shifts around the globe and issues related to climate changes have pressured governments and cities to rapidly drive changes in the mobility planning to offer more affordable and accessible mobility. In this workshop the use of data to support and allow for transformations will be in focus and several examples of how data can support this transformation will be presented.

R&I projects introducing (open)data-based tools to improve planning, access and operation of public transport were invited to present their ideas and experiences. They range from supporting public transport through automation procedures to data-sharing practices and standards helping to increase accessibility. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss challenges and successful examples of intelligent mobility solutions from their perspectives and experiences.

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

We look forward to your participation!

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, databased 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. Several events on different transportation topics took place since the summer of 2021 and the series continues throughout 2022.
