The Research Association for Combustion Engines (FVV) is a globally unique network of companies, research & technology performers (RTD) and funding bodies. In the context of pre-competitive Industrial Collective Research (IGF), manufacturers of automotive engines, industrial engines and turbomachinery as well as their suppliers and service providers work together with universities and other research establishments on cutting-edge technologies. The aim is to make engines and turbines cleaner, more efficient and sustainable – for the benefit of society, industry and the environment.
Combustion engines facilitate individual mobility, transportation, energy supply and industrial added value. The innovative power of the industry and its economic success make a significant contribution to social prosperity. As a non-profit organisation, the FVV supports the development of its members - small, medium and large companies - and the promotion of young scientists through pre-competitive industrial collective research.
The FVV is a member of the German Federation of Industrial Research Associations (Arbeitsgemeinschaft industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen - AiF), the leading national organisation for applied research and development for SMEs, and has invested more than 500 million euros in 1,200 research projects since it was founded in 1956.
