The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) funds research and development projects aimed at facilitating German companies’ access to the growth market of big data within the ‘Smart Data’ framework, its research priority.
We support our client in the implementation of suitable funding programs, for instance the ‘Smart Data – Innovation from Data’. Within this funding programme, we support a total of 13 associative projects in the application fields of industry, mobility, energy, and health. The programme seeks to fund lighthouse projects designed to remove technical, structural, organisational and legal obstacles to the use of big data technologies.
This highly practical approach is intended to provide small to medium-sized enterprises with the opportunity to engage in the beneficial and legally compliant use and exploitation of large data volumes. The programme also addresses fundamental framework conditions such as the legal situation and innovative business models for the use of big data.
