The Commercial Vehicle Cluster

Joining forces to take the lead

The aim of the Commercial Vehicle Cluster is to be at the very front in the commercial vehicle sector by networking with others.

The requirements for reaching the aspired top position in the international competition are favourable: The South West of Germany offers huge potential through technologies and the production of lorries, buses, agricultural and construction machinery as well as their components:

  • Around a quarter of the national turnover in this sector is achieved in the south of Rhineland-Palatinate and the west of Baden-Wurttemberg. The proportion of employees here is equal in size in comparison with employment figures for this industry nationwide.
  • Hundreds of businesses – manufacturers and suppliers of various sizes – and service providers, several universities, polytechnics and institutes for applied researches are successful in this region, many of them internationally.
  • There are good prospects for competent, internationally competitive recruits in the Commercial Vehicle Sector. With great success the interdisciplinary international Master's program "Commercial Vehicle Technology" has been established in 2008 at the University of Kaiserslautern.
    By now 30 students have acquired their Master’s degree in this field.
    About 80% of the graduate master students are from Asia, especially India. A great opportunity for European companies to recruit graduates with highly specialized engineering knowledge combined with in-depth knowledge of the Asian market.
    Even before starting their degrees the master students usually have many years of work experience, often in European automotive companies located in Asia.
    There is also an agreement between the Oregon State University and the TU Kaiserslautern which gives German students the opportunity to take a semester abroad in the Graduate Program CVT.

The Cluster specifically offers its partners:

  • Participation in the CVC’s key projects, workshops and events dealing with current issues in the industry
  • Integration into knowledge transfer and knowledge management of industry specialists
  • Advance information on particularly innovative solutions
  • Visibility at important trade shows and events
  • Networking with decision-makers in the realms of business and research
  • Solutions offered for current challenges in the industry
  • Access to qualified young talent
  • Opportunities for greater business success
  • A newsletter that offers the possibility to publicize your own achievements and innovations
  • Public relations activities
  • International contacts

Lokale 5G Campusnetze – eigener Mobilfunk für Institutionen

Frequenzen, Antragsverfahren und Anwendungen.

17. Oktober 2019, 16.00 Uhr
Business + Innovationscenter Kaiserslautern
Trippstadter Straße 110
67663 Kaiserslautern

Erstmals in Deutschland und Europa wird durch die nationale Regulierungsbehörde für Telekommunikation, die Bundesnetzagentur, der Aufbau eigener 5G-Campusnetze oder sogenannter Non-Public-Networks im Mobilfunk ermöglicht. Unabhängig von den Netzen bundesweiter Mobilfunknetzbetreiber hat die Bundesnetzagentur für den Aufbau dieser institutionellen 5G-Netze Frequenzspektrum im Bereich 3,7 bis 3,8 GHz reserviert. Diese können ab Herbst 2019 auf Antrag bei der Bundesnetzagentur zugeteilt werden.

Am 17. Oktober 2019 informieren das Ministerium für Wirtschaft, Verkehr, Landwirtschaft und Weinbau Rheinland-Pfalz in Kooperation mit der Industrie- und Handelskammer für die Pfalz über den neuen 5G Mobilfunk, das Antragsverfahren zur Frequenzzuteilung bei der Bundesnetzagentur sowie am Beispiel der BASF SE über neue Anwendungen und industrielle Nutzungsmöglichkeiten von 5G im Rahmen des Aufbaus eines Campusnetzes. Zielgruppe sind etwa die Industrieunternehmen, der Mittelstand und landwirtschaftliche Betriebe.
