the data marketplace for the mobility sector

Offer

Data exchange, expertise and support:
this is how participants benefit

Offer and purchase data

The Mobility Data Space connects people who offer mobility data with people who need it to develop and run new business models – simply, transparently, securely and with full added value for both sides. Providers maintain full data sovereignty at all times, meaning they decide who can use their data and for what purpose.

Access to service providers

The Mobility Data Space offers access to a broad network of service providers called the MDS Service Partners. They support participants at every step of the process, be it onboarding, identity management or business development.

Exchange with industry experts

The MDS Forum brings together experts from start-ups, SMEs, public transport, municipalities, politics and science. Participants benefit from numerous, exclusive exchange and informative events.
