The world of mobility is changing, it is becoming more complex, thus reflecting developments that take place in many areas of our society. This change is driven by numerous technological and social changes (digitisation, urbanisation, demographic change, etc.). In the light of these developments and the enormous challenges with regard to the climate change and the scarcity of resources, the mobility of the future requires new solutions provided by research, innovation and technology more than ever.
With its mission-oriented and technology-based thematic research funding programmes, the BMK addresses the entire transport system as an interaction between user, infrastructure and vehicle in the ground and air transport sector, in order to initiate and accompany mobility-related change processes, and at the same time open up competitive advantages in key business sectors. Therefore Austria is able to significantly improve its transport-related and mobility-related solution skills in Austria and abroad, and generate benefits for the society, the economy and the environment.
