Solutions for a Mobile Future

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Schaeffler AG have signed a Memorandum of Understanding" (MoU) for a collaborative research project. Schaeffler and the KIT will investigate future-oriented questions regarding mobility and develop solutions. This aims at setting new standards in collaboration in the research, development, and early industrialization of hybrid and all-electric drive systems and their components in order to meet the requirements of mobility in the future.
"This partnership with a leading research facility like the KIT will open a new chapter in Schaeffler's collaboration with universities", says Prof. Peter Gutzmer. The globally active automotive and industrial supplier will be present on the KIT Campus EAST according to the company on campus concept and will deploy employees in the "Schaeffler E-Lab at the KIT". This will ensure direct, intensive collaboration geared towards results. Initially, a team comprising five employees from Schaeffler and the KIT will be formed. The research topics will be controlled by a joint steering group. A special advantage is that the expertise and infrastructures of both partners such as test stands, laboratories, and knowledge networks can be used in synergy. "The 'Schaeffler E-Lab at the KIT' means an attractive and inspiring working environment is being created for development engineers, economists, humanities and social science students and system-oriented scientists" says Dr. Peter Fritz, Vice President of Research and Innovation of the KIT.
