IKT 2020 Focus Electro Mobility
Electro-mobility has great potential to become an essential part of the future mobility system in Germany. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) therefore provides funding for the development of key technologies for high-quality, innovative vehicles that are fully or partially electrically driven. A major hurdle on the way towards electro-mobility is the relatively short travel range. In the interests of an efficient use of the available energy, the funding programme does also take account of topics such as weight reduction (lightweight construction) as well as energy and thermal management by the use of high-performance components. Apart from supporting research co-operations between science and industry, another focus lies on the promotion of initial and further education. VDI/VDE-IT has been assigned as programme managing organisation.
