Volkswagen Group, Wolfsburg / Germany

The Volkswagen Group, with its headquarters in Wolfsburg, Germany, is one of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers and the largest carmaker in Europe. Volkswagen operates 99 production facilities in 27 countries and has a broad product range stretching from ecological passenger cars to luxury and sports cars, light & heavy duty trucks and commercial vehicles. At the end of 2012, nearly 549,763 people were employed across the group. In the same year, the Group increased the number of vehicles delivered to customers to 9.3 million, corresponding to a 12.8 percent share of the world passenger car market. The annual turnover exceeded 192 billion euros while expenditures for R&D came up to approx. 8.85 billion euros. The 42,089 employees within R&D account for about 8% of the total workforce.

It is the goal of Volkswagen to offer vehicles with continuously increased quality, safety and improved technological standards while reducing fuel consumption and emissions at the same time. Therefore the ideas contributed by our employees and the expertise of external partners play a key role. Volkswagen is interested in the application of new developments in all automotive areas not only to meet all relevant technical and legal requirements but also to satisfy customer demands on a consistently high level.

Volkswagen has experience in the co-ordination of and participation in national and EC funded projects and networks involving European car manufacturers, suppliers, research organisations and universities. Some of these projects are listed subsequently.
