 Central aim of organisation
AVL is the world’s largest privately-owned company for the development of powertrain systems as well as simulation, instrumentation and test systems.

 Briefly describe your organisation
AVL LIST GmbH is the world’s largest privately owned and independent company for the development of powertrain systems as well as simulation, instrumentation and test systems. AVL´s Powertrain Engineering division activities are focused on the research, design and development of various powertrains in the view of low fuel consumption, low emission, low noise and improved drivability. The Advanced Simulation Technologies division develops and markets the simulation methods which are necessary for the powertrain development work. The Instrumentation and Test Systems division is an established manufacturer and provider of instruments and systems for powertrain and vehicle testing. AVL supplies advanced development and testing solutions for conventional, hybrid and electro vehicle components and systems like simulation platforms, development tools and system integration tools.

 RTD Experience
AVL is especially interested to enhance its portfolio for the design, validation, testing and instrumentation of powertrain systems relying on digitalization (ICT covering e.g., CPS, IoT, data sciences).

In order to maintain global leadership in powertrain development as well as instrumentation, test systems and simulation technologies, the three business divisions of AVL continuously invest in massive in-house research programmes. This includes a wide range of co-operations with industry and more than 50 universities on national and international level.

At a European level AVL collaborates with several associations that support the European automotive research landscape. In this context the most relevant are EARPA (European Automotive Research Partners Association), EUCAR (automotive manufacturers), CONCAWE (fuel industry) and CLEPA (automotive supply industry). Of particular importance is AVLs participation in the European Technology Platforms ERTRAC (road transport), ARTEMIS-IA (embedded & cyber-physical systems), EPOSS (Smart Systems Integration) FCH (fuel cell and hydrogen research) and EGVIA, the European Green Vehicle Initiative. On international level, AVL actively participates in ASAM, the Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems, AUTOSAR, the Automotive Open Systems Architecture and others.

The national co-operations are often based on university collaborations and AVL´s memberships in organisations such as the Automotive Cluster Styria, A3PS - the Austrian Agency for Alternative Propulsion Systems, the SafeTRANS cluster about embedded systems in transportation, FVV - the German research association for internal combustion engines, FVA - the equivalent for powertrain research and in Sweden the FKG Vehicle Component Group.
