Science for a moving society needs strong partners

Industrial research and development benefits from the fact- / field-based collaboration with the science community - universities and their science centres as well as 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 from the entire German-speaking research landscape (DACH) and to an increasing extent from Europe and Japan.

Science for a moving society

The Industrial Collective Research (Industrielle Gemeinschaftsforschung IGF) organised within the FVV Innovation + Transfer Network and carried out by experienced research and technology (RTD) performers enables particularly small and medium-sized enterprises to participate in cutting-edge international research.

And at the same time, FVV together with the RTD performers empower young academic talent. In our IGF projects, young engineers are well prepared for their work in industry: As a rule, one PhD and two student research projects, Bachelor's or Master's theses result from an IGF project.
