Knowledge anywhere and anytime

We love research. And we love sharing our knowledge and science. The variety of topics around prime movers is great: alternative fuels – components, lubricants and materials – acoustics, mechanics and friction – climate and air emissions and, of course, advanced engineering and development tools to construct and design high-efficiency and ultra low emission turbomachinery and internal combustion engines (CI and SI). Our innovation network includes around 170 companies and more than 100 research centers, institutes and universities in Germany and Europe. Our newsletter, media information and publications as well as the articles in our partner magazines MTZ / ATZ will give you an insight into the research output of the FVV. And if you do not find what you are looking for, please let us know. We’re here to help!
