Discover the Future of Mobility with our New Tool! - Transformative Innovations launched in Bangkok today

GIZ on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is glad to launch the Transformative Innovations Map as part of the Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI). The interactive Map shows a spatial and categorized overview of transport innovations worldwide.  This map encourages cities to discover, partner and try out new mobility concepts.

Innovations change mobility behavior. Well-known forms of transport are constantly being improved, restructured and reinvented. Innovative mobility concepts and digital solutions are emerging worldwide. Not only familiar stakeholders participate in this transformation process, but above all startups, businesses and engaged cities have paved the way for a new era of urban transportation.

But how to keep track of relevant information and distinguish between greenwashing and game-changers?

Due to the high innovation, dynamics in the mobility sector, the identification and evaluation of viable mobility concepts plays an important role for all local decision-makers. That is why the TUMI initiative supported by GIZ has developed this tool: By screening technology innovations and reporting on worldwide mobility trends, we want to encourage executives to achieve improvements in local transport systems.

Our understanding of the term “innovation” encompasses any new concept or idea in the context of transport. In differing contexts, optimal solutions may vary one from another, all having the potential to inspire new transport developments and trends.

The interactive Transformative Innovations Map enables users to discover new developments in the fields of:

Innovations are evaluated according to criteria such as feasibility, adaptation possibilities, prerequisites and challenges and can be downloaded easily in PDF format.
