Working for the FEV in Aachen
The Meuse-Rhine Euroregion, where the city of Aachen is located, unifies the border provinces of the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany in one economic zone, that profits by a great diversity and interaction.

The close collaboration of FEV and the RWTH Aachen University enables promising and forward-looking research in the framework of powertrain engineering.
