Cluster Internationalization

Through its embedding in the European Research Network ECPE, the Cluster Power Electronics has been active internationally ever since it was founded. Cluster events are regularly attended by participants and presenters from throughout the entire German speaking area.

The cluster is open to participate in projects on European level, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Cluster Internationalization 

In the course of the internationalization measure sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the cluster has been strengthening cooperation with Japan since early 2016. The two innovation regions are working on the new generation of wide-bandgap power semiconductors, an effort that is leveraged with coordinated strategies and joint research projects. Bilateral meetings and workshops not only broaden the technical exchange, they also broaden cultural understanding.

During a concept phase in 2016 and 2017 a series of national and international workshops, training courses and expert discussions lead to a better understanding of the research needs of wide-bandgap power electronics and the benefits for both regions were laid down in an 'internationalization strategy paper'.

The implementation phase with two research projects funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research started in August 2018.

Find out more about the 'IsoGap' and 'SiC-DCBreaker' projects interlinked with research efforts by our Japanese cooperation partners.
