Join Sustainable Drives on the International Day against climate change


The European MAXIMA project, in which we participate, will hold a workshop on the latest developments in electric vehicle (EV) technology. If you are passionate about the environment and the future of transport, book your place for the event on October 24 from 10:00 to 12:00 (CET) online!

About the Workshop “Sustainable Propulsion: Exploring innovations in green vehicle propulsion”

The workshop brings together four pioneering European projects committed to revolutionizing electrification in the automotive industry. As the world seeks sustainable solutions to combat climate change, the shift to electric mobility is more crucial than ever. However, challenges such as high manufacturing costs, environmental impact and resource scarcity remain obstacles.

MAXIMA is focused on developing a Modular Axial Flux Motor for Automobiles, an innovative solution that promises to improve the efficiency and sustainability of electric vehicle propulsion. Workshop highlights breakthrough innovations proposed by MAXIMA and other EU-funded projects. Through presentations and discussions, experts from these projects will share their knowledge on the design, manufacture and validation of environmentally friendly electric traction motors. By attending, you will gain a deeper understanding of how these innovations contribute to sustainable electric mobility, reduce environmental impact and address supply chain challenges related to rare earth materials.

FEUGA, as an integral part of the MAXIMA project, will play an important role in the event. Ángela Muñiz, our colleague from Innovation and European Programs, will be in charge of opening the workshop.
