Calls for proposals


With the new funding framework "Development of Digital Technologies", the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy 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!

Campus networks based on 5G communication technologies

BMWi is involved in the increased use of public 5G-based networks and the expansion and use of so-called campus networks for industry. The wireless networking of production facilities, plants, logistics systems and other relevant economic sectors and facilities enables the effective and secure networking of companies in specific fields of application. The program Campus Networks on the Basis of 5G communication technologies aims to support innovative developments based on an extended OpenRAN approach in campus networks.

Quantum computing - applications for the economy

The German government has set itself the goal of promoting the application of quantum technologies and in particular quantum computing (QC) with the framework program " Quantum Technologies - from Fundamentals to Market ". The BMWi is participating here with the proposal call "Platforms, tools and methods for the development and integration of quantum computing applications". With pioneering projects, the potential of applications of quantum computing should be demonstrated to the public and the economy and contributed to its utilisation.

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.
