To understand solar and stellar magnetic field evolution combining local and global numerical modelling with long-term observations is a challenging task: even with state-of-the-art computational methods and resources, the stellar parameter regime remains unattainable. Our goal is to relax some approximations, in order to simulate more realistic systems, and try to connect the results with theoretical predictions and state-of-the-art observations. Higher resolution runs undertaken in this project will bring us into an even more turbulent regime, in which we will be able to study, for the first time, the interaction of small- and large-scale dynamos in a quantitative way.
