FAV network "Transport and mobility"

FAV's research network provides contacts to all universities, universities of applied sciences and research institutes in the region BerlinBrandenburg which deal with the topic of transport and mobility.
The company network is FAV's support offer for small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) for the BerlinBrandenburg region. FAV's company network provides assistance in the definition of projects, mediation of cooperation and access to development funds at both national and European levels.

Basic performance for network members:

  • Inclusion in the development of cooperative R&D projects,
  • Support when looking for partners,
  • Mediation of contacts to customers, sponsors, trainees etc.
  • Passing on information regarding events, relevant calls etc.

The interaction of the company and research network has a special significance. As FAV coordinates both networks and is aware of the members' competencies, we guarantee quick access to appropriate companies and research institutes to form problem-orientated project teams. In this manner, it is possible to realise system competence at a regional level within several areas of transport to a far higher extent than to date at regional level, naturally also involving the larger companies in the region.
