The FVV (Forschungsvereinigung Verbrennungskraftmaschinen | Research Association for Combustion Engines ) is a worldwide innovation network of companies, research & technology performers (RTD) and funding bodies. In the context of pre-competitive Industrial Collective Research (IGF), manufacturers of automotive engines, aircraft engines, industrial engines, turbomachinery and fuel cells as well as their suppliers and service providers work together with universities and other research establishments on cutting-edge technologies. The aim is to make prime movers - internal combustion engines, hybrids, turbomachines and fuel cells - cleaner, more efficient and sustainable – for the benefit of society, industry and the environment. The FVV has invested more than 500 million euros in 1,200 research projects since it was founded in 1956.
The International Engine Congress as a knowledge forum and industry meeting place for engine development focuses on the entire system of engine technology: from energy generation to energy storage to energy conversion. With its unique concept, it brings together the current technological state of knowledge of the entire system of non-fossil fuels and internal combustion engines and their holistic evaluation with regard to climate protection. It is thus the central, practice-oriented platform for the exchange of knowledge and suitable systemic strategies for meeting the Paris and Glasgow climate targets. Dietmar Goericke will host a session on the Defossilisation of the Transport Sector in Europe - LCA (FVV Fuel Study IV/IVb).Further information

The International Vienna Motor Symposium takes place annually and is one of the worldwide leading events of this kind. At the International Vienna Motor Symposium, more than 1,000 decision-makers from the most important enterprises of the worldwide automotive engineering industry meet together. The two-day programme offers a variety of ground-breaking lectures and allows sufficient time for exchange of opinions and networking. This top-level lecture programme is accompanied by an exhibition at which leading automotive and component companies present latest technologies and developments.Further information
The technological transformation in individual mobility on the basis of regenerative primary energy requires an intensified technical exchange of ideas between leading representatives of the automotive and energy industry on the one hand and science and politics on the other. For that reason, this congress will focus on topics that not only describe the change in vehicle powertrains, but also present technological solutions in the associated infrastructure, including the provision of primary energy. Discussions will concentrate on political framework conditions as well as on systemic innovations for the future and digital solutions.16th International MTZ Congress on Future Powertrains | Shaping the future open to all technologiesFurther information
Industry and research are already working diligently on the mobility of tomorrow. Powertrains will have an increasing amount of electric and electronic components, and the technology requirements are rising quickly. Exchange ideas with international experts from leading companies and institutes – and catch up on the latest research results and gain insights into industrial practice. Take advantage of this opportunity to be a part of the E-MOTIVE Expert Forum with your presentation: 21-22 September 2022 | WolfsburgFurther information
Sustainability - a topic that we encounter more and more frequently and that is also gaining relevance in the development of mobility solutions of the future. More than ever, international cooperation is needed to meet all these challenges. The Aachen Colloquium Sustainable Mobility, which continues the long tradition of the Aachen Colloquium Automotive and Engine Technology, offers international experts from research and industry the opportunity for an intensive and exciting exchange. 31st Aachen Colloquium Sustainable Mobility | 10 to 12 October 2022Further information
The electrified journey: Developing sustainable products // Electrification of powertrains is the key to CO2-neutral mobility. The automotive industry is developing electrified powertrain systems and components at full speed. Product development processes must be adapted to customer expectations and legal requirements. With the state of the art of current development methods, we would like to show how the increasing complexity can be mastered and where there are still gaps. The congress offers you an in-depth insight into the subject matter through expert lectures, discussions and exhibition, as well as the opportunity for networking. Main topics: Energy storage and converters / electrical system components / transmissions and bearings / materials, coatings and lubricants / simulation / integrative development methodsFurther information
Europe is the largest factory of knowledge, ideas and innovation in the world: Around one-third of the global production of know-how and innovative products comes from EU engineers and researchers. Cross-border cooperation unites the best minds and ideas. It makes the difference: globalisation - climate-neutral economy - energy transition in transport - mobility of tomorrow. These are just a few examples of the tasks of the future that need to be adressed - together with our members and partners in Europe and the world.
