FVV 2018 Spring Conference

22 - 23 March 2018 | Bad Neuenahr | Germany


We are glad to invite our members, partners and friends this spring for two days to Bad Neuenahr to inform about topical findings (interim/final reports) from industrial collective research projects (IGF) and other interesting topics of current research.


The information sessions on the first day of the event are important meetings for the industries to get briefed on the latest results of industrial collective research on combustion engines and turbomachinery. They take place twice a year - spring and autumn - and offer the opportunity to network actions with the employees of the research association as well as with the delegates from the research institutes, engine and turbomachinery manufacturers, suppliers, development services providers and our international partners. Particularly at the evening event, which will take place, as always, in the wine cellar »Winzergenossenschaft Mayschoß«, the focus is on personal networking.


The second day of the event is reserved for the association’s internal planning group meetings.


All sessions - Day 1 | Engines and Turbomachinery, Day 2 | all internal committee meetings - are translated simultaneously into English.


We look forward to seeing you in Bad Neuenahr.
