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.
