German Center for Future Mobility (DZM)

The Ger­man Cen­ter for Future Mobi­li­ty (DZM) is inten­ded to con­tri­bu­te to the fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of Ger­ma­ny as a mobi­li­ty loca­ti­on into an inter­na­tio­nal­ly visi­ble pio­neer for the mobi­li­ty of the future. In doing so, the DZM orchestra­tes a net­work struc­tu­re that bund­les cross-modal and inter­sec­to­ral capa­ci­ties and resour­ces and crea­tes new ones in a tar­ge­ted man­ner.

The network’s Munich DZM node brings tog­e­ther the network’s diver­se acti­vi­ties and topics and repres­ents them extern­al­ly in terms of com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. Form main instru­ments of the node:

- Think Tank
- Mobi­li­ty Aca­de­my
- Public Rela­ti­ons

DZM exter­nal loca­ti­ons are ope­ned throug­hout Ger­ma­ny in Anna­berg-Buch­holz, Karls­ru­he, Min­den and Ham­burg. The DZM is stra­te­gi­cal­ly and tech­ni­cal­ly accom­pa­nied by the foun­ding advi­so­ry board, chai­red by Prof. Wolf­gang A. Herr­mann. The Advi­so­ry Board is com­po­sed of 4 working groups. The topics cover­ed include the mobi­li­ty aca­de­my, think tank, start­up fun­ding and endo­wed pro­fes­sor­ships.

TUMint pro­vi­des ope­ra­tio­nal sup­port to the Fede­ral Minis­try of Trans­port and Digi­tal Infra­struc­tu­re (BMVI) in the DZM pre-foun­da­ti­on pha­se until the end of 2021. TUMint pro­vi­des the office infra­struc­tu­re in the Munich Urban Colab and also takes over the orga­niza­tio­nal and stra­te­gic tasks of the DZM start-up office. The coor­di­na­ti­on of the DZM foun­ding advi­so­ry board also falls within the scope of TUMint’s respon­si­bi­li­ties.

The Ger­man Cen­ter for Future Mobi­li­ty (DZM) will be res­truc­tu­red and expan­ded in line with the coali­ti­on agree­ment.
