The Federal Government has set up a guidance service for electric mobility at the Federal "Research and Innovation" Funding Advisory Service in order to make funding activities in the field of electric mobility transparent and customer friendly for businesses and research facilities. This service helps in the search for suitable funding programmes, provides advice for research funding offered by the federal government in the field of electric mobility, and assists in the application process. On its website, the electric mobility guidance service offers information on current funding announcements, ongoing and completed projects, and who is responsible for funding in federal ministries.
The Federal Government’s funding database offers an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of current research calls for proposals from the Federal Government, the states and the European Union. The online database displays the different offers using a standardised catalogue of criteria, independent of the level of funding and the providers of the funding. It also identifies important links between the different funding programmes, and explains basic terminology of funding law.
