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.
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. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we will meet online once again: 21-23 September 2021.Further 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. After last year's digital event, the colloquium is currently scheduled to take place again at the Eurogress Aachen.

Under the headline “Clean drives. Efficiently produced.”, the 2nd Fuel Cell Conference Chemnitz will address the aspects of fuel cells suitable for series production and their hydrogen powertrains as well as their efficient production through state-of-the-art production processes. The conference is being organised by the “HZwo – Antrieb für Sachsen” innovation cluster in Saxony and will take place at the Carlowitz Congress Center in Chemnitz. It is aimed at researchers and engineers from Germany and Europe to discuss the latest trends and developments from research and industrial application. NOW GmbH is an event partner of the conference.Further information
The international MTZ Conference “Heavy-Duty, On- and Off-Highway Engines” on 1 and 2 December 2021 in Rostock is an ideal platform for the developers and designers of engines for commercial vehicles, mobile machines, ships, and stationary applications to gather information on the very latest developments. This year, the program will focus not only on heavy-duty engines for alternative fuels, hydrogen engines, and electrified powertrains, but also on re-occurring topics such as exhaust gas aftertreatment and solutions for ultra-low emissions.Further 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.
