Technology, innovation and collaborative research are generously funded in MV. In addition, the acquisition and production costs of new assets are subsidized. The state provides up to 45 percent for the establishment of a business facility. As a full-service provider, we support you in applying for subsidies from MV and the EU. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
- Workforce and networks
In order to be able to react flexibly to the changing demands on vehicles, the automotive-mv e.V. network is planning to establish sustainable and effective transformation structures. To this end, an automotive training network is being established. In addition, an automotive transfer center for CO2-neutral production will be established. Under the title "Automotive transformation strategy for sustainable value creation in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern", in short: "Autotrans-MV", a project is currently being implemented together with the qualification provider REFA-Landesverband M-V e.V. and the University of Rostock, Chair of Production Engineering. The project is supported by the federal government with 1.7 million euros and will run until the end of June 2025. In the network, companies in the state can increase their innovation competence and thus sustainably strengthen their own competitiveness.
automotive-mv e.V. has 23 member companies with around 3,500 employees and 180 trainees. The companies generate annual sales of around 1.1 billion euros. One important founding objective was to make more effective use of the existing potential of small and medium-sized suppliers in particular. The initiative solicits orders for companies in the state. It provides advice and support for qualification and training, pools expertise, exchanges experience and is active with its own profile in the automotive network of the new states, the Automotive Cluster East Germany (ACOD).
- Research and development
The automotive industry is making great strides in the area of research and development. In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, sustainability is the top priority. The Institute for Regenerative Energy Systems researches alternative energies and their storage. TheInstitute for Energy and Environment at Stralsund University of Applied Sciences, on the other hand, focuses on rational energy use. The aim is to use energy better and more efficiently. Recently, a breakthrough was achieved here: for the first time, methanol has been produced from hydrogen and carbon dioxide without buffer storage. The conversion plant for this process is powered entirely by electricity from wind energy. The Leibniz Institute for Catalysis in Rostock is working on sustainable solutions for exhaust gas aftertreatment using catalysts.
Another future-oriented approach is fuel cell vehicles. The energy for propulsion from a fuel cell is generated with the help of the chemical reaction between hydrogen and methanol. The Hydrogen and Informatics Institute of Applied Technologies in Schwerin is working on innovative technologies for the production and processing of both gases. Several projects have already been completed here, from which the automotive industry is benefiting. In the Stralsund-Rügen model region, universities and research laboratories are working on the further development of hydrogen drives. HyStarter is researching the potential of a regional hydrogen economy. Constant development is also underway at Stralsund University of Applied Sciences. Year after year, the ThaiGer-H2-Racing team takes first place in this vehicle class with its innovative developments on its own hydrogen engine. The project has been in existence for over ten years and has since enabled great progress to be made in the field of hydrogen engines. The future of the automotive industry is therefore also being shaped in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
