ASSTRA is a H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN European Industrial Doctorate training program. ASSTRA is the acronym for "Advanced Solid-State Transformers”. This interdisciplinary training program researches the development of advanced solid-state transformer technology in DC-equipped energy supply systems.

As a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network, ASSTRA will train 2 early stage researchers (ESRs) in this field, raising their academic standards and practical engineering skills as well as developing a powerful research network across Europe.

ASSTRA involves two partners in the network, the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands and the ABB Corporate Research Center in Switzerland.

ASSTRA will train two Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) with access to excellent research facilities and close coaching approaches at both locations. Both ESRs will spend at least half of their training at the industrial partner.
