EERA Joint Programme on Wind Energy (JP Wind) is a collaboration among the 53 largest public research groups in Europe with substantial research and innovation efforts in wind energy. The aim of EERA JP Wind is to provide strategic leadership for medium to long-term research and to support the European wind energy industry and societal stakeholders.
Since 2014, EERA JP Wind has been organising yearly events in Amsterdam. This year the annual event was organized from both JP Wind as well from the SETWind project. The SETWind project is EU funded with the aim to support the implementation of the SET-Plan Implementation Plan for Offshore Wind. The project partners work closely together with the Implementation Working group that consists of country representatives, a member of ETIPWIND and a member of EERA JP Wind. A collaboration with European Commission’s Joint Research Centre in Petten has been established.
The EERA JP Wind & SETWind Annual Event aims for knowledge exchange, network opportunities and inspiration for new research topics. It is intended to focus on R&I priorities and technology development visions.
An important part of the programme was dedicated to discussions on the EERA JP Wind R&I 2019 strategy. That has been delivered as a result of several EERA JP Wind workshops in the beginning of 2019. A printed copy was distributed to all participants and discussions were held to make it soon a publication.
