Other RUE Actions:

A Group of Interest in Power Electronics (GiP) has been created in the Basque Country. TECNALIA and GAIA are the coordinators of the Group. The industrial Partners are: INGETEAM, TRAINELEC, JEMA, ZIV and ORMAZÁBAL.

The aim of this Group is twofold. On the one hand, the industrial partners are informed of the progresses on the RUE project, in particular on that concerning SiC components. On the other hand, they present their needs in this area to TECNALIA. Therefore, they can be taken into account in the project researches.
