Bosch And Giz India Collaborates For Green Urban Mobility Innovation


Bosch Limited has collaborated with German development agency Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH to launch a Green Urban Mobility Innovation initiative.

Bosch will implement inclusive, smart mobility, and sustainable solutions in India. The initiative is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Government of India (Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs)

Bosch is a leading supplier of technology and services in the areas of Mobility Solutions, Industrial Technology, Consumer Goods, and Energy and Building Technology. Additionally, Bosch has in India the largest development center outside Germany, for an end to end engineering and technology solutions.

Both the companies will boost transportation and green urban mobility in the country with innovation and collaboration. Bosch India will set up a ‘Living Lab’ in Bengaluru to governance structure, a secretariat, and a panel of a group of experts to discuss innovations.

A team will be deployed from Bengaluru and Germany for conducting the assessment, collecting data and analysing the performance of prototyping activities. Later it will expand the ‘Living Lab’ innovation community.

Julie Reviere, Country Director, GIZ India, said, “The Living Lab will facilitate the co-creation and adoption of innovative technology solutions with a high social and environmental impact for Indian cities. We are confident that our efforts will have a lasting impact on India’s transportation and mobility ecosystem.”

Philipp Knill, Head of Division, German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, said, “We see the Green Urban Mobility Partnership Innovation initiative as a great example where business meets development. By combining Bosch’s resources and expertise with ours in the mobility sector, I am confident that this initiative will have a noticeable impact on a more sustainable Indian transportation and mobility system.”

The project is also funded by develoPPP (BMZ’s funding programme). The programme encourages sustainability in developing countries.
