Research Funding

Since 1958, the iVTH is one of around 100 industry-oriented research institutions among the members of the German Federation of Industrial Research Associations – AiF e. V. which cooperates with over 1200 research bodies and about 50,000 associated companies. This group promotes pre-competition Industrial Collective Research (Industrielle Gemeinschaftsforschung – IGF) which receives government funding from the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) to technically advance entire industries.

Industrial Collective Research acts as the bridge between fundamental research and industrial application. The objective of the programme is to balance out the structural disadvantages of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the field of research and development. The research projects focus on the needs and interests of the business with the business being fully involved.
