Abstract

In this contribution we discuss about the possibility to find a De Sitter vacuum in, N = 4 compactifications by introducing (non-)geometric fluxes. As a first step we identify the gauge algebra in terms of gauge and (non-)geometric fluxes. We then show that this algebra does not lead to any of the known gaugings with De Sitter solutions.
