The CBM experiment will investigate heavy-ion collisions at beam energies from 8 to 45 AGeV\ud at the future accelerator facility FAIR. The goal of the experiment is to study the QCD phase\ud diagram in the vincinity of the QCD critical point. To do so, CBM aims at measuring rare probes\ud among them open charm. In order to identify those rare and short lived particles despite the\ud rich combinatorial background generated in heavy ion collisions, a micro vertex detector (MVD)\ud providing an unprecedented combination of high rate capability and radiation hardness, very light\ud material budget and excellent granularity is required. In this work, we will discuss the concept of\ud this detector and summarize the status of the R&D
