We provide a complete research chain from basic (theoretical) research to the development of functional samples and prototypes and their complete testing.
- We have unique research infrastructure, such as an indoor laboratory for high-voltage power electronics and transport technology for testing vehicles and equipment up to 31 kV and 4 MW.
- For cooperation with key industrial partners, we offer the use of special laboratories for materials and technology research, including “clean rooms”, microscopy laboratories, EMC, X-ray diagnostics laboratories, acoustic laboratories and others.
Research and Innovation Centre for Electrical Engineering – R&D
- More than 200 male and female researchers.
- Founded in 2010.
- Over 120 projects and contract research contracts are handled annually.
- Average annual turnover approximately EUR 9 million.
