First yearly IRPWIND conference in Amsterdam

Friday 10 Oct 14


IRPWind consists of 24 partners from the European R&D community and started on 1 March 2014 and has been designed for a duration of 4 years.

On 25th and 26th of September 2014 the first yearly IRPWIND conference was held in Amsterdam.115 persons from the European Wind Energy R&D community were gathered in Amsterdam to discuss strategic research projects and how to make the most out of the IRPWIND project.
The annual conference that is part of the IRPWind project, aims to bring together all partners of the EERA consortium and discuss progress, not only of the IRPWind project, but also key national activities relevant to the different sub-programmes of EERA JP Wind.


The conference comprised both parallel sessions at sub-programme level as well as plenary talks from the IRPWIND coordinator Peter Hauge Madsen and from representatives from the European Commission and industry. Several technical and collaborative gaps, currently hampering the next generation of wind energy technologies, were discussed.
During a closing plenary discussion, it was emphasized what IRPWIND would like to achieve during the next 4 years at European level and how we can improve the collaboration between the research communities and industry as well as how IRPWind will promote international collaboration.
