ECPE – the Industrial and Research Network for Power Electronics in Europe - has started a European initiative of academia and industry to jointly develop research and technology roadmaps. Our vision is to devise medium to long term research roadmaps up to 2020 to offer guidelines for power electronic research by universities and research centres, but also to provide an orientation for public research programmes and to help industry to prepare for upcoming technologies. The focus of the ECPE roadmap initiative is put on power electronics in different key systems and applications installing system-oriented teams with experts from industry and university.
