About the International Maglevboard e.V.

The International Maglevboard e.V., or "The international Society for Maglev Transportation", is an international non-profit organization. It is made up of internationally known transport scientists, engineers, experts as well as members of citizens' movements. 

The Maglevboard is oriented to the public interest, works independently and, as a basic tenet, does not represent any commercial interests. It is oriented toward interdisciplinary and scientifically based support of long-term social well-being, especially in relation to sustainable mobility. One focus of our attention concerns the prospects and limitations of magnetic levitation transport technologies.


The International Maglevboard e.V. does not in any way, shape or form endorse any particular manufacturer or industry group. We are beholden to no corporate interests.


The members of the International Maglevboard e.V. unanimously agree that high-speed maglev systems are a relevant and important transport technology for the future. However, we also encourage differences of opinion on the specific systems, technical details or applications, especially as these form the basic components of a constructive, critical discussion.  We also welcome inquiries or dissenting opinions from those who wish to engage in constructive discussions of the merits of competing intercity transport systems.



This website is addressed to anyone — public officials, decision-makers, media representatives, traffic and transport scientists and any interested citizens — who would support a constructive, critical discussion on the prospects and limitations of available intercity transport technology.u.
