InRel-Npower project was selcted for EU-Japan Joint call (Horizon 2020 Call:NMBP-02-2016 - Advanced Materials for Power Electronics based on wide bandgap semiconductor devices technology) which is coordinated with co-funding for Japanese partners from the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) services. The research consortium with nine European and two Japanese partners will start their research activities on 1 January 2017.
The main objective of this proposal is to develop reliable GaN-based power devices and systems for high and medium power electronics targeting industrial and automotive applications and bringing the GaN power devices another step towards the wide usability in the energy saving environment to further tap the full potential which this new material brings along.
