Why joint research matters

Industrial collective research is always conducted on a precompetitive basis. This makes it possible to research key issues together in order to be able to master the ever growing demands in relation to materials, fuel efficiency and environmental compatibility. As such, the joint research coordinated by the FVV also helps to improve the competitive ability of our member companies. The fact that these manifold activities are even possible in the first place is primarily thanks to the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), which played a key role in the foundation of the FVV in 1956 by launching the industrial collective research (IGF) programme to promote the innovative power of the German Mittelstand - a programme that continues to run to this day. Today the FVV is a strong partner of both – the IGF and the Federation of Industrial Research Associations (Arbeitsgemeinschaft industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen) – AiF.
