Move Mobility—MoMo

Accompanying research on the future of mobility

iRights.Lab is launching a new project—Move Mobility (MoMo)—with the support of the BMVI. The aim of MoMo is to make the projects and innovations financed by the mFUND (Modernitätsfonds) even more visible to project partners and citizens while developing them further.

The chal­lenge

With the mFUND (Moder­nitäts­fonds) research ini­tia­tive, the Fed­er­al Min­istry of Trans­port and Dig­i­tal Infra­struc­ture (BMVI) has been fund­ing research and devel­op­ment projects relat­ing to dig­i­tal data-based appli­ca­tions for mobil­i­ty 4.0 since 2016. The projects fund­ed are high­ly inno­v­a­tive and prac­tice-ori­ent­ed. Nev­er­the­less, their con­tent, their impact, the under­ly­ing issues, the top­ics engaged and the results pro­duced have not yet been made suf­fi­cient­ly vis­i­ble to the actors involved and the inter­est­ed pub­lic. Cit­i­zens, who will ulti­mate­ly ben­e­fit from these inno­va­tions in their every­day lives, also need bet­ter under­stand­able infor­ma­tion in order to fol­low the spe­cial­ist debate, to par­tic­i­pate in it and to help shape the future of mobility.

Our approach

With our new project Move Mobil­i­ty, we have set our­selves the goal of exten­sive­ly doc­u­ment­ing the inno­va­tions gen­er­at­ed by the fund­ing ini­tia­tive and pre­sent­ing them in a mul­ti­me­dia form. We also aim to bet­ter net­work the var­i­ous projects financed by the mFund and to gen­er­ate new poten­tial through syn­er­gies. Our con­cern is to fur­ther devel­op ideas, con­cepts and projects for an intel­li­gent and fair mobil­i­ty of the future. Through a ver­sa­tile com­mu­ni­ca­tion strat­e­gy, we hope to more involve the var­i­ous play­ers in the broad­er pub­lic dis­course and to work togeth­er on joint solutions.

The result

The project team is devel­op­ing a dig­i­tal net­work­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tion plat­form. In addi­tion, inter­ac­tive and par­tic­i­pa­to­ry net­work­ing for­mats are being planned, in order to facil­i­tate exchange both on- and offline. Through the con­tent and sup­port that it lends, Move Mobil­i­ty thus plays a cen­tral role in help­ing to fur­ther devel­op the mFUND and, by exten­sion, the dig­i­tal strat­e­gy of the Ger­man Fed­er­al Government.
