SGO has identified R&T activities that require expertise or resources not currently available in the consortium. SGO Partners are thus involved in the programme via Calls for Proposals, and they intervene to answer a specific topic.

Key competencies sought cover a wide range of areas. Here are a few highlights:

  • Simulation, modeling and analysis of electrical networks
  • Cooling technologies
  • Materials with high mechanical resistance for rotating machines
  • Mathematical expertise in multi-parameter optimization
  • Aviation operational expertise (pilot, airline experts, etc.)

Since 2010, numerous additional partners (currently more than 60) have joined the SGO team.
