The implementation of this research vision requires a broad and structurally anchored interdisciplinary cooperation of natural and engineering sciences as well as economics and social sciences.
The NFF bundles the research activities around mobility in Lower Saxony. Currently there are 44 members, from the universities of Braunschweig, Hanover and Clausthal as well as regional research facilities (for example the German Aerospace Center, Ostfalia, Wolfsburg AG) bundled in the NFF. Research is conducted in the field of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, chemistry, psychology, social sciences, civil engineering and economics. The NFF focuses on future-oriented topics in vehicle and traffic engineering research, which are handled in interdisciplinary research teams.
