Japan confirms the start of a CORNET partner project

The Research Association for Internal Combustion Engines and its Japanese sister organisation AICE successfully launched another CORNET project // The German-Japanese research consortium continues its successful research projects on oil transport and supply in narrow gaps using the example of the lubricating oil film thickness at the edges of the piston oil control ring

The European funding programme CORNET (Collective Research Networking) recently published good news regarding the successful collaboration between CORNET and the Japanese partner organisation NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Association): An AICE (Japanese Research Association of Automotive Internal Combustion Engines) & FVV (Research Association for Combustion Engines) partner project submitted in the 27th call has now been approved for funding and can start its work soon: "Fuel Oil Flow Measure - Clarification of fuel and oil flow behaviour around piston rings of internal combustion engines aims to make significant contributions regarding the global conditions of the lubricating oil film at the piston assembly, fuel and oil flow and the basic mechanism as well as influencing factors in both SI (Spark Ignition) and CI (Compression Ignition) engines".

Main objectives of the cooperation project

NEDO had joined CORNET in 2017 and is already co-funding another successfully running AICE-FVV cooperation project: "Post-oxidation (HC, CO and PM) in the Exhaust Manifold of SI (Spark Ignition) Engines".

CORNET enables and promotes international projects, which are carried out in the framework of the precompetitive industrial collective research programme IGF and are funded on the German side by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). The 28th CORNET Call for Proposals starts in mid-December and ends on 25 March 2020.

FVV members will find further information on the research project in our project management database THEMIS.
