Call for proposals published 1 August 2022 based on the funding programme "Development of Digital Technologies"

Deadline for submissions: 21 October 2022, 12:00 noon


In the coalition agreement "Mehr Fortschritt wagen" (dare more progress) of 7 December 2021, the Federal Government set itself the goal of using digital technologies to transform the economy towards greater sustainability, more climate action and more environmental protection.

Digital technologies have the potential to cut emissions that damage the climate by up to 20 %. The "GreenTech Innovation Competition" call for proposals aims to leverage this potential in order to contribute to achieving the German and European climate and environmental targets within the meaning of the Agenda 2030. Building on this, the call for proposals aims to increase Germany's competitiveness for Green Technologies and Green Services and to strengthen German and European sovereignty.

Funding scope

The aim of the call for proposals is to develop, test and apply platforms, tools, methods, business models, use models or standards for the economic development and integration of digital technologies for sustainability. The projects in the call for proposals should provide decisive impetus for the ecological transformation of the economy, especially with regard to climate action and environmental protection.

With this call for proposals, the following topics are to be addressed more intensively:

  • Sustainability via digital technologies
  • Sustainability of digital technologies
  • Using digital technologies to measure sustainability
