We celebrate the launch of the Green Urban Mobility Innovation Living Lab in Bangalore!
In partnership with Bosch Limited, GIZ India has set up the Green Urban Mobility Innovation Living Lab in Bangalore, the first initiative of its kind in India. The Living Lab aims to develop sustainable, inclusive and smart mobility solutions through an industry-led multi-stakeholder platform for innovation, collaboration and prototyping.
During the event a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT), Govt of Karnataka and Bosch Limited.
The initiative is carried out under the aegis of the Green Urban Mobility Partnership (GUMP) between the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Government of India, and the Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung (BMZ).
The importance of the initiative was underscored by the participation of key public and private sector stakeholders, enablers, start-ups and academia in the field of sustainable urban transportation.
The Green Urban Mobility Innovation Initiative is funded through the develoPPP programme that GIZ implements on behalf of BMZ. It is aimed at encouraging sustainability initiatives by the private sector in developing countries. This Indo-German development cooperation flagship initiative will combine Bosch’s technical know-how of mobility innovation and GIZ’s public and private sector network to operate the Living Lab in Bengaluru.
