European Doctoral Network for Safe and Sustainable Electromagnetic Shielding Solutions for Mobility
PARASOL is a Doctoral Network at the intersection of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), materials engineering, system-safety engineering, and sustainability management. The project will include the Safe and Sustainable-by-Design (SSbD) approach for vehicles. The Doctoral Researchers (DRs) trained in the project will research electromagnetic (EM) shielding solutions, which are performance defining technologies in terms of EM safety, weight, volume, mechanical strength, and the cost of a vehicle.
The SSbD approach is pivotal for addressing electromagnetic interference (EMI) challenges in the evolving mobility market, marked by the rise of electric vehicles and increased autonomous functionality. The absence of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and a comprehensive assessment methodology hinders effective EMI shielding solutions. The project aims to fill these gaps, providing valuable KPIs and insights through effective communication and dissemination. Bridging these challenges will empower companies, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises, to navigate EMI risk management successfully, contributing to the overall goal of developing efficient KPIs for shielding solutions using the SSbD approach in the mobility sector.

Are you interested in collaborating?
The PARASOL project is keen on exploring new collaborations with partners from other EU-funded projects and platforms, both to exchange on technological aspects as well as to organise joint activities, such as events, information sessions or other initiatives that can build on project results.
The Doctoral Researchers are the driving force of the PARASOL project, and their training and education is one of the pillarstones of the project.
Hosting institutions are the beneficiaries in the PARASOL project, and host 1 up to 4 Doctoral Researchers per university.
Involvement of industry is important in a project like PARASOL. Many partner organizations are involved, ensuring hands-on industrial experience for the DRs.
