Our future lives on research and development
Application-oriented research and technological leadership are essential for the survival and competitiveness of any company. The Research Association Baumaschinen und Baustoffanlagen e.V. is dedicated to this topic (FVB) very intensively. With more than 40 member companies and partner universities throughout Germany, the FVB has an extensive network in the research economy and science and thus promotes dialogue between them. One of our most important tasks is to acquire funds for joint research with the aim of supporting the innovation potential of our members. The FVB has been very successful in this field for over 40 years.
The Research Allowance Act came into force on 1 January 2020. Here you can find out who benefits from the new tax incentives, what you have to take into account and how the VDMA will support you with this type of subsidy.

Companies that participate in the FVB enjoy a head start in knowledge, receive a free completion report of the projects, can further develop and apply the results within the company and transfer them to standardization.
How do we work in the FVB? The FVB Guide answers this question. The procedure for submitting and discussing new topic proposals and research proposals plays a central role. The guidelines provide for a two-stage process.
The FVB was founded in 1972 and is one of the 19 research committees of the FKM e.V. (Forschungskuratorium Maschinenbau). The aim of the FVB is to promote and support the innovation potential of its members. It has four organs which control its work:
