The FVV submits a German-Japanese pilot project to CORNET

The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO) is the new official partner organisation in the CORNET network – FVV and AICE initiate German-Japanese collective research pilot project – The cooperation project is dealing with post-oxidation phenomena (HC, CO and PM) in spark-ignition engines.

For the first time, the FVV and the Japanese Research Association of Automotive Internal Combustion Engines (AICE) have submitted a German-Japanese pilot project to CORNET. Japan with its New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO has recently become a partner of the European Collective Research Networking organisation, whose activities are coordinated by the German Federation of Industrial Research Associations (AiF) and financially supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).

After Japan and Germany concluded a cooperation agreement on the transnational promotion of future technologies in the spring (see our news of 02.05.2017), the Japanese Development Organisation for New Energy and Industrial Technologies (NEDO) is now an official partner in the CORNET network of industrial collective research in Europe. And so Dietmar Goericke, Managing Director of the FVV, and Dr. Takao Fukuma (Toyota Motor Corporation), Chairman of the Aftertreatment Research Committee of the AICE, welcomed Takehiko Nagai, Director-General of the European Office of NEDO, at the FVV 2017 Autumn Conference in Leipzig and jointly presented the first bilateral FVV-AICE research project. The project was submitted to CORNET in late September and is dealing with post-oxidation phenomena (HC, CO and PM) in spark-ignition engines (FVV Planning Group 6 »Emissions & Immissions« | M2917).

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