Besides its in-house activity (mostly related to battery and fuel cell evaluation), ARM has several R&D projects with European universities and research institutes related to the different technologies enumerated above. The main role of ARM is to identify breakthrough technologies in Europe related to those area, to promote research on the new identified seeds, to secure those technologies via IP protection and finally to promote those research achievements within the Toyota. Over the last 5 years our ARM members have been gradually more involved in European and national funded projects and are taking an active role in several consortia.
