Sustainable Mobility

Developing future mobility to deliver people and products to global markets.

The United States and Germany both have to face the challenge on securing mobility for necessary economic processes in the future. Guaranteeing an accessible infrastructure for all, the impact of mobility on the environment must be kept as low as possible. This becomes increasingly important considering growing population and traffic rates. But how to apply smart sustainability solutions? The Sustainable Mobility Transatlantic Dialogue brings together leading innovators to solve this question.

The core of the program will connect German and American organizations, companies and institutions in the field of mobility/research/sustainability. Through targeted roadshow series in the US and delegation trips to Germany the program establishes an exchange for best-practices. Focusing on different aspects of Sustainable Mobility, the program will include know-how transfer, technology development, case studies and much more.

Transatlantic Program

Since 1997, the German Federal Government has been promoting the German Program for Transatlantic Exchange (Transatlantic Program) through the European Recovery Program (ERP, a.k.a. the Marshall Plan). The funds are managed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and offer financial support to projects that promote exchange between Germany and the US in the fields of culture, education, science, and economics. The Transatlantic Program aims to strengthen and reinforce the synergies that connect Europe with the United States. Projects funded by the program serve the following purposes:

  • To project an all-encompassing image of German culture and language
  • To foster exchange between individuals, multipliers, and leaders, particularly of the younger generation
  • To provide a platform for the sharing of opinions on current and future issues
  • To promote meetings aimed at economic cooperation

These initiatives aspire to lend fresh momentum to transatlantic relations. They should take an innovative approach and speak to the public interest.
