Calls for proposals


With the new funding framework "Development of Digital Technologies", the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action wants to address current thematic priorities and challenges even faster and more flexibly than before through timely calls for funding. Based on the funding framework, concrete calls for funding will be published in future and the procedure for submitting project proposals will be explained.

International cooperation

International cooperations are coordinated R&D projects in bilateral international space or within the framework of European funding measures. Only the shares of German partners are funded!

Edge data economy

The aim of the technology programme "Edge Data Economy" is to develop and test innovative data science technologies for edge computing solutions in different application domains and to develop sustainable business models based on them.

The submission deadline has expired. Further information will follow in autumn 2022 at the start of the selected lighthouse projects.

Strategic stand-alone projects

Strategic stand-alone projects are intended to promote new and outstanding technologies and solutions that are expected to have long-term and strategic effects in the ICT sector.
