TRANSFORM is an R&D project funded by the EU and national funding authorities aiming to build a complete and competitive supply chain in EUROPE for Power electronics (PE) based on SiC semiconductor technology.


We develop a complete and competitive PE value chain based on SiC semiconductors extending from wafers to inverters/converters, to be showcased in 5 applications. Model based system engi­nee­ring and life­time models based on digital twins will be de­ve­loped to enable under­stan­ding of complex inter­actions, shor­ten de­vel­opment cycles and improve trace­ability along the value chain.


Europe is well positioned in the power electronics (PE) domain with global players such as STMicro­electronics, Bosch and Infineon as well as inno­vation leaders like Soitec, Danfoss and Semi­kron. However R&D on SiC based PE is necessary for European sovereignty in the field of power electronics. This is an essential technology for many important societal challenges (health, digi­taliza­tion, climate, energy, mobility, agriculture…) in Europe.


TRANSFORM consortium brings together key European players among the complete SiC value chain: from materials and sub­stra­tes to inverters and con­ver­ters for 5 uses cases in auto­mo­tive, industry, re­new­ables and agriculture appli­ca­tions. Our consortium of 34 partners from 7 EU countries including uni­versi­ties and technology insti­tutes as well as OEMs on the advisory board offers the essential competencies and platform for targeted achieve­ments.
