German Mobility Award
With the German Mobility Award, the “Germany – Land of Ideas” initiative and the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure put digital innovations and intelligent mobility solutions in the public eye and thus provide new impetus for Germany as a digital location.
Digital innovations for a mobile, safe and sustainable society
With the German Mobility Prize, the “Germany – Land of Ideas” initiative and the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure put intelligent mobility solutions and digital innovations in the public eye. The goal is to present digital ideas made in Germany that can potentially shape future mobility. Whether it’s automated and networked driving, route information in real time, electronic tickets, or satellite-supported car sharing: digitalisation is opening up new possibilities for getting people and goods from point A to point B comfortably yet safely, efficiently, and in an environmentally sound manner. Germany can make a major contribution to the digital transformation of mobility.
“Germany is the number one mobility country! With the German Mobility Award, we are promoting moving innovations made in Germany. Because with the best ideas we will become a trailblazer for Mobility 4.0,” says Alexander Dobrindt, the German Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, summing up the aim of the competition.

In every competition year, ten trailblazing best-practice projects centring on the themes of participation (2016), safety (2017) and sustainabilty (2018) are awarded. Companies, start-ups, cities and municipalities, research institutions, universities, partnerships, networks, transport associations, clusters, and other German-based organisations have the opportunity to apply for the Germany Mobility Award. An expert jury selectes the prize winners whose innovative projects harness the possibilities afforded by digitalisation to make mobility more intelligent. A 16-strong expert jury, chaired by Dorothee Bär, Member of the German Parliament and Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, selectes the ten competition winners.
