Calls for proposals

Funding Programme

With the funding programme "Development of Digital Technologies" (2022 to 2026), the BMWK aims to address current thematic priorities and challenges quickly and flexibly through timely calls for funding. Based on the funding programme, specific calls for funding are published and the procedure for submitting project proposals is 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!

GreenTech Innovation Competition

Digital technologies have the potential to reduce climate-damaging emissions by up to 20 %. The "GreenTech Innovation Competition" call for proposals aims to leverage this potential in order to contribute to achieving German and European climate and environmental targets. Building on this, the call for proposals is intended to increase Germany's competitiveness in the field of Green Technologies and Green Services and to strengthen German and European sovereignty.

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.
