ADEPT is a unique European industrial and academic project focused on electric propulsion systems.
As a Marie Curie Initial Training Network, ADEPT will train 12 early stage researchers (ESRs) and 2 experienced researchers (ERs) in this field, raising their academic standards and practical engineering skills as well as developing a powerful research network across Europe.
A further goal is to produce a versatile and comprehensive development platform for E-propulsion systems. This is both a virtual (based on models and simulation) and a real (involving demonstration hardware as well as Hardware-in-the-Loop based test systems and control software) development environment for E-propulsion systems.
An intimate involvement in all aspects of the collaboration (research, secondments, experiments etc.) along with an extensive training program in a wide range of related fields (electromagnetics, thermal, mechanical, vibroacoustics, control, vehicle integration) allows the ADEPT ESRs and ERs to develop their technical proficiency and complementary skills such as project management and entrepreneurship.
The industry-academia partnerships within ADEPT further facilitate the application of scientific results of the ADEPT program within E-propulsion and other industrial products and solutions.
