Research Programme Urban Transport 2017/2018
Forschungsprogramm Stadtverkehr 2017/2018
The Research Programme Urban Transport (FoPS) is a funding programme of the Federal Ministry for Transport and Digital Infrastructures (BMVI) for improving transportation conditions in communities.
Objectives of FoPS are to elaborate and assemble application oriented, scientific and practical knowledge for decision makers in urban and regional transport.
Core of the programme is the application-driven investigation of specific questions, which shall ensure transferability to regions all over Germany. Basic research is accepted insofar it serves the application-based research. Planning tasks are considered research elements if they are designed as transferrable examples.
Third parties can present interesting project proposals to BMVI via state transportation ministries and communal key associations. Together with the federal states and a scientific advisory commission the short list of project funded under the Research Programme Urban Transport (FoPS) is compiled. The FoPS programme is renewed every other year.
Currently, the programme FoPS 2017/2018 is funding 24 projects.
