In an interview posted on the website of the Munich newspaper “Münchner Merkur”, Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (CSU) first announced his plans for a mobility center in the Munich region. The research center will be called the “German Centre for Future Mobility” and will have workshops, a practical campus and multiple university departments. A total of 200 experts will work there developing alternative fuels, the city of tomorrow and new mobility concepts. The funding amount of 500 million euros will come from the federal budget. According to Scheuer, the Finance Minister Olaf Scholz has already indicated his support.
The headquarters of the mobility center is to be in the metropolitan region of Munich. Additionally, Scheuer wants to support fuel research in Straubing, Lower Bavaria and Ottobrunn, Upper Bavaria with 50 million euros. More precisely, the plan is for a technology user center with a focus on hydrogen, a data center and a digital test area. There is no schedule for this yet, but it will be developed by a project group together with the State of Bavaria and the City of Munich.
