Workshop on how to maintain Europe as global leader in wind energy through research and innovation
The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Wind Energy (ETIPWind) connects Europe’s wind energy community. Key stakeholders in the platform involve the wind energy industry, political stakeholders and research institutions.
The scope of ETIPWind is to create a virtual and physical platform via which the wind energy community can communicate, coordinate and collaborate its work and activities related to research, innovation and technology. The ambition is to define and agree on concrete research and innovation (R&I) priorities and communicate these to the European institutions and other decision making bodies in order to support the ambition of reaching the RES targets for 2020.
Thus, the purpose of the activities carried out is to enable ETIPWind to perform its advisory activities to policy makers in a systematic and coordinated way, which facilitates collaboration transparency and share information with all stakeholders of the wind energy community and policy makers.
ETIPWind is a reorganisation of the former European Technology Platform on Wind (TPWind) that ceased operation in 2014.
