About FVV

What is driving our future?

Collective research on cutting-edge technologies for clean, efficient and sustainable automotive engines, industrial engines and turbomachinery: This is the mission of the Research Association for Combustion Engines – the FVV. Combustion engines facilitate individual mobility, transportation, energy supply and industrial added value. The innovative power of the industry and its economic success make a significant contribution to social prosperity. As a non-profit organisation we support the competitive ability of our member companies by organising pre-competitive industrial collective research.

How FVV makes your company stronger

International cooperation is the key to technical progress in a globalised economy. Small, medium and large companies in the engine and turbomachinery industries together with their engineering and IT services providers and suppliers of systems and components form an international platform for pre-competitive basic research. SMEs in particular can profit from the FVV Prime Movers Network because they may save costs and gain new impulses for product development. Anyone participating in the FVV can better and more efficiently transform research results into competitive products: Achieving impact in research by seeking shared success.

High impact in research needs strong partners

The FVV understands itself as a technical and scientific innovation platform. We maintain long-term contacts with all major technical universities and research organisations in Germany and increasingly also in Europe. We are a member of the German Federation of Industrial Research Associations (Arbeitsgemeinschaft industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen - AiF) and of the Mechanical Engineering Research Federation (Forschungskuratorium Maschinenbau - FKM) managed by VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau | Mechanical Engineering Industry Association). Together with our partners, we form a strong network for industrial collective research on modern combustion engines.
