ETIPWind presenting at IRPWind stand at the Offshore Wind Energy 2017 Conference

How to improve the transfer of Intellectual Properties and Technology from the research community to the wind industry?

To address the issue of Research and Innovation (R&I) market uptake, IRPWind will present the IP Showcase, an online platform where research communities can display their IPR and Technological achievements to the entire wind energy community at the Offshore Wind Energy 2017 conference in London from 6 to 8 June.

IRPWind has created an information corner for sector stakeholders, providing information on how the IP showcase contributes to a more efficient technology transfer process as well as to the market uptake of R&I technology developed by the research community. The information booth can be found in the poster area and is open to all participants with a valid exhibition and/or conference pass.

To further increase synergies between the research community and the wind industry, the IRPWind team is hosting two IP matchmaking events. One on Tuesday 6 June from 16.00 – 17.15 and one on Wednesday 7 June, 13.15 – 14.30. In two separate sessions key speakers will briefly highlight the advantages of the IP Showcase to both the research community and the industry. ETIPWind representatives will hold a presentation on the importance of disseminating R&D assets to the industry. After the demonstration, matchmaking is initiated on the following topics:

  • Grid Systems, Integration & Infrastructure
  • Operation & Maintenance
  • Industrialisation
  • Offshore balance of plant
  • Next Generation Technologies
  • From R&I to deployment

Industry stakeholders are invited to partake to the matchmaking events and discuss R&I achievements and opportunities with the Technology Transfer Experts from the research community.
