The main objectives of the FASTGRID project are to:

  • Increase the electrical field that superconducting tapes can withstand under limitation without any degradation of properties.
  • Improve the critical current of the tapes.
  • Raise the robustness of the tapes against all kinds of operation conditions using a novel approach to boost the so called Normal Zone Propagation Velocity (NZPV).
  • Functionalize its surface to increase the thermal exchanges with the coolant.

The Project, which has received funding from the European Union‘s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No 721019, has a duration of 42 months, and started on January 1, 2017. 12 partners, comprising 9 research institutions and 3 industrial partners, from 8 different countries (Canada, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Slovakia, Spain and Switzerland) are working together in this project, which has a budget of 9 M€.
