“Fraunhofer System Research for Electromobility – FSEM II” is the follow-up project to “FSEM I” which ran from 2009 through 2011 and was funded by the German federal government.
Within this joint project “FSEM II” (running from 2013 to 2015), 16 different Fraunhofer institutes are pooling their expertise. Funded by Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the research focuses on a clearly defined range of applications for electromobility. Project activities are grouped in three clusters: “Drivetrain / Chassis”, “Battery / Range Extender”, and “Body / Infrastructure”.
The project aims to extend the representation as well as the expertise of Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in the field of electric mobility. Furthermore, the strengthening of the potential acquisition for industrial projects by developing innovative technologies and components for hybrid and electric vehicles as well as the cooperation in the exploitation is in focus. In addition the expansion of substantive cooperation of the Fraunhofer-Instituts is to be continued in the direction of a system recovery approach.
