In Industrial Collective Research (Industrielle Gemeinschaftsforschung IGF), innovative small and medium-sized businesses, globally operating enterprises and excellent research and technology institutions are working together on technologies facilitating, for example, mobility and materials research or energy efficiency and sustainability – always based on a cross-sectoral, basic research-oriented and thus pre-competitive approach. Such a systematic research into sustainable energy and powertrain systems involving many different energy sources and energy converters demands a large, collective network.
Systematic research into sustainable energy and powertrain systems that involves many different energy sources and energy converters demands a large, collective network.
FVV Research is globally networked to find scientific and technological foundations for climate neutrality and zero-impact emissions from sustainable energy conversion systems. In doing so, we always keep an eye on society's expectations and the technological requirements for sustainable development. Industrial Collective Research (IGF) that wants to do justice to its role in society must therefore contribute to both climate neutrality as well as a resilient and globally competitive national economy.
In the FVV Innovation + Transfer Network, technologies are developed by researchers, engineers, technicians and scientists who are passionate not only about continuously improving what already exists, but also about constantly creating something new. Networks that are constantly expanding are crucial for success. FVV offers just such a network of companies, research and technology performers and other partners – and thus the foundations for making it new.
Why FVV makes your company stronger
Industrial Collective Research (IGF) empowers companies to solve joint research and technology problems on a science-based approach. It provides access to a continuous stream of new knowledge you can use to create your own products, processes and services.
International cooperation is the key to technical progress in a globalised economy. Small, medium and large companies - manufacturers of power plants and energy carriers, powertrain systems, vehicle/industrial engines, fuel cells, aircraft engines and turbo machines as well as their development service providers and suppliers of systems and components - form an international platform for pre-competitive fundamental research. SMEs in particular can profit from the network because they may save costs and gain fresh impulses for product development.
Together we develop ideas for the future.
Empowering a moving society
Industrial research and development benefits from the fact- / field-based collaboration with the science community, universities and non-profit research institutions, on the future of technology. This creates innovative power in industry and excellence in research, teaching and learning.
We at the FVV are a very lively science network. We maintain long-standing contacts with all major technical universities and research centres in Germany and to an increasing extent in Europe and worldwide.
