EERA JP Wind Annual Event 2022

ConferenceProgramTravel, Accommodation & Dinner

Wind Innovation Forum, in collaboration with ETIPWind 

September 19 – 21, (Amsterdam)

The EERA JP Wind Innovation Forum is the yearly event organized by EERA JP Wind (www.eerajpwind.eu) to meet among the research managers in wind energy from academia, institutes and industry. Policy makers from member states and EU join the events. The Forum is an interactive EERA event of 3 days with workshops, presentations and discussions on strategic wind energy research. The aim of the forum is to provide the European R&I community in wind energy opportunities to create synergy advantages for European research organizations and industry in support of the green energy transition and the SET-Plan goals.
The innovation forum is organized together with the industry platform ETIPWind (www.etipwind.eu). Therefore, we expect a good participation from industry representatives.

Since 2014, EERA JP Wind has been organising yearly events in Amsterdam, often in collaboration with the industry platform ETIPWind and the SETPlan Implementation Working Group on offshore wind. The Wind Innovation Forum aims for knowledge exchange, network opportunities, collaboration opportunities and inspiration for new research topics. It aims on R&I priorities and technology development visions.
