RHODaS Partner Meeting in Vienna

After the first partner meeting in Barcelona, all project partners of the RHODaS project, which started in May 2022, met for the second partner meeting in Vienna at the location of the Austrian Institute for Technology (AIT).

Within the EU-funded RHODaS project, a new powertrain for electric trucks is being developed using new semiconductor technologies, silicon carbide (SiC) & gallium nitride (GaN).
The basic specifications for the powertrain have already been defined. The goal is to create a hybrid solution using both SiC and GaN. The Ecodesign research group is now starting to develop concrete specifications with regard to environmental, criticality and circular economy aspects. For this, the cooperation of all project partners is crucial. The partner meeting offered the ideal framework to bring the topic of ecodesign, circular economy and life cycle assessment closer to all participants.
The next partner meeting will take place in spring 2023 at the site of the project partner Bosmal in Poland.
