Individual Strategic Projects

Individual projects are aimed at driving outstanding new technologies and solutions from which one might anticipate long-term strategic impacts in the ICT sector. These varied projects adopt a forward-looking approach and are particularly significant for the German economy.

Autonomik

AUTONOMICS was about future-oriented approaches for the development of a new generation of intelligent tools and systems that are able to network themselves, recognize situations, adapt to changing operating conditions and interact with users and other objects.

Autonomics for industry 4.0

The technology programme "AUTONOMICS for Industry 4.0" has dovetailed modern I&C technologies with industrial production by exploiting innovation potentials and accelerating the development of innovative products.

E-Energy

The E-Energy programme, which was a joint initiative of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety made a vital contribution to speeding up the German energy reforms.

IT2Green

The IT2Green technology programme was launched to provide funding for innovative pilot projects which aim to develop comprehensive solutions that make the use of ICT in data processing centres, telecommunications networks, and office and home appliances more energy-efficient.

NextGenerationMedia

The Next General Media technology programme provided funding for 11 collaborative projects which explored new opportunities linked to electronic networking, and focused on ubiquitous computing and its use in specific fields of application.

OIH

The joint project OIH - Open Integration Hub aims at the prototypical development of an open source integration platform. OIH user companies will be able to synchronize their data automatically between applications.

SimoBIT

Under the SimoBIT initiative, funding is provided to cooperative research projects aimed at developing, testing and the widespread use of innovative and secure mobile multimedia applications for improving productivity and quality in business and administration.

Smart Living

In recent years, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) has carried out a large number of R&D funding measures within the framework of its funding programmes and strategic individual projects, demonstrating the feasibility and benefits of smart living applications in areas such as comfort, safety, energy management and health prevention.

THESEUS

The individual THESEUS projects explore a range of new services and service platforms for various fields of application both for home and private-sector use.

Trusted Cloud

The goal of the Trusted Cloud technology program was to develop and test innovative, secure and legally compliant cloud computing solutions. Medium-sized companies in particular are to benefit from these new, cloud-based services.
