The first of these events was held to showcase the research being carried out on Work Package 1 of the Prosperity Partnership project together with associated work on the Powertrain Research Hub programme in collaboration with the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult.
We had presentations from our project sponsors and main partners to understand what their goals are for both projects and to hear how such collaborations are beneficial to them. The academic principal investigator gave an overview of the work being undertaken in the Electrical Machines and Drives Group at the University of Sheffield, and then we heard from two academic supervisors providing more details on specific projects that were currently underway.

In February 2022 we repeated the event for the research being undertaken in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield on Work Package 2. Again we heard from the EPSRC, from Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and from the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult as well as more detailed explanations of the research in the department from academic colleagues and PhD students.

In the coming months we intend to run similar events to showcase the work being carried out on Work Packages 3 and 4.
