The FORM Forum organized by EARPA – European Automotive Research Partner Association – have gathered more than 200 participants during this one-day event. It has been a unique opportunity for ModulED project to present at the CEA booth the recent development and expected achievements of the partners in the context of the EU funded projects. In addition to the EARPA members, stakeholders, representatives of the European Commission and industry were here to discuss the research that is conducted by this community and how it reaches societal and economic impact.


On the 8th and the 9th October 2018, all partners of the ModulED project gathered together for the third time for our 5th executive board and 2nd steering committee. The event was organized by ModulED partner ZG, hosted by FVA GmbH, in Munich.

The technical part of the meeting showed that the project is currently moving forward according to our GANTT Chart. :

  • The initial specifications and end-user requirements are fully finished;
  • The optimized propulsion system design shows promising results but needs slight adjustments;
  • The multiphase motor design with optimized magnetic materials shows 2 very promising designs which should exceed expectations;
  • The GaN inverter design is finished and electrical tests must know be made;
  • The transmission system is being readied;
  • An initial update of the overall project exploitation strategy is currently underway.

First dissemination activities have started and new ones should follow soon.
