The National Competency Network for Sustainable Mobility, or NaKoMo (Nationale Kompetenznetzwerk für nachhaltige Mobilität), turned three years old in April 2022. Over this short period, NaKoMo has become the central point of contact for sustainable mobility issues at local, state and federal levels. It facilitates a nationwide interdisciplinary exchange on all aspects of sustainable mobility across difference topics. NaKoMo therefore adds a valuable contribution to the range of diverse funding opportunities.

Networking and strengthening across all political levels

The network was founded by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV), Saarland as chair of the Transport Ministers’ Conference and the Association of German Cities in April 2019. The idea was that NaKoMo brings together, facilitates networking and supports the sustainable mobility pioneers in the municipalities, the federal states and the federal government. NOW is part of the NaKoMo office and provides support as an NaKaMo team for all questions about the exchange platform as well as events.

Network provides support through events and expertise

Through NaKoMo, a multitude of events have been on offer over the past three years, including workshops, talks, seminars and casual lunch roulettes for networking. The digital meeting point and anchor for all this is the central exchange platform at All the various sustainable mobility stakeholders at municipal, state and federal levels meet here.

Strategic partners have also been acquired: the state competence centres and the trans-state mobility network bring the federal state perspective to the table and Mobilikon is an online reference tool for practical sustainable mobility examples and solutions, particularly for the rural area. Membership numbers has steadily increased, and now the network counts more than 1,850 members.
