The FORMS/FORMAT 2014 Symposium will take place near the city of Braunschweig at the new NFF Building. Supported by Lower Saxonys state government and Volkswagen AG, the NFF was founded as an interdisciplinary research centre in 2007 to establish the research region Braunschweig as the leading location for internationally renowned mobility research. It is the basis for effective cooperation between science and industry and their research.

The research programme of the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen is based on the concept of the Metropolitan Car and focuses on the development of future, vehicle-related technologies and usage models to sustainability meet the individual mobility requirements in urban centres.
