Last April, the NEOHIRE Consortium, formed by 10 partners, met at KOLEKTOR premises in Essen (Germany) to analyze the evolution of the project. Members of the Advisory Board and the Technical Monitor also were present at this meeting. The progress made so far in the project was presented to them and they gave their recommendations to continue the lines of research initiated.

NEOHIRE aims to reduce the dependence on magnet material for the manufacture of electric motors and generators. In this scenario Cidaut presented the status of the Work Package 3 of the project, which is related to the design, modeling and simulation of a novel full-scale wind turbine generator using the magnets developed in the project.
