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, industrial engines and turbomachinery 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 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
More stringent emission legislation and an increasing public interest for environmentally friendly propulsion concepts are dominating the research and development activities of engine manufacturers and suppliers. With the introduction of IMO TIER III emission limits for marine diesel engines must be drastically reduced. At the same time, substential regulations on the fuel sector are to be respected. To meet these challanges new technological concepts and control strategies are required.
The conference focusses on recent research and development results to comply with future emission limits as well as the discussion of current and prospective boundary conditions. In this context, researchers and engineers from engine manufacturers and suppliers as well as representatives from shipping companies, ship building industry, power plant operators and legislation are addressed by the symposium.Further information
Industry and research are already working today on the mobility of tomorrow. Electromobility stands for the combination of climate protection, social change and economic success. The powertrain of the future will play a central role in this. To find meaningful and successful solutions it needs orientation and expertise. E-MOTIVE offers the best opportunity for this. Exchange ideas with international experts of leading companies and institutes – and participate through knowledge transfer, current research results and insights into industrial practice. You can help determine the mix: Present your future solutions from 16 – 17 September, 2020 in Wolfsburg. It´s worth being there - as a speaker or participant!Further information
Bearings are performance-relevant components in virtually every machine and help determine its energy efficiency, power density, operating noise, service life, etc. With its focus on rolling and plain bearings, the congress should therefore also be of interest to you and your colleagues:
BEARING WORLD by FVA
20-21 October 2020 | Hannover, Germany
Come to BEARING WORLD, the international conference on bearings - rolling and plain bearings. Get into dialogue with international experts from research and industry and bring yourself up to date with the latest technology. Organizer is the Research Association for Drive Technology (FVA) e. V.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.

Downsizing in a single-stage turbocharged engine concept goes hand in hand with the trade-off between high rated power and acceptable performance in the lower engine speed range. In order to extend the stable characteristic map range, a variable cross-section concept for the radial compressor has been analyzed. The investigations were carried out as part of an FVV research project at the Leibniz University Hannover and the Technical University Braunschweig.Learn more

To reliably predict interactions between acoustic and vibration phenomena of complex powertrain systems in an early development phase, appropriate test and simulation procedures are indispensable. The Research Association for Internal Combustion Engines (FVV) lays the groundwork for this with numerous projects which range from the detailed analysis of single engine components to automated processes for engine noise and transfer path analysis into the vehicle interior.Learn more
