The 'Support to 7th European conference on turbomachinery - Fluid dynamics and thermodynamics, Athens, March 2007' (Euroturbo7) project was a support action for the organisation of the European turbomachinery conference (ETC) in Athens, Greece. Titled 'Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics', the conference targeted researchers, design engineers and turbomachinery components users. The presentation of current developments and best practices in the field was intended to make this a main event for technology transfer across Europe. In addition to fostering EU-wide collaboration in turbomachinery research, the conference organisation and location were regarded as integrating elements for western and eastern European countries. The conference was divided in two parallel sessions with one invited lecture planned for each of the four days. An additional session was held to accommodate the final number of papers selected for presentation. Session chairmen were selected from ETC committee members and review organisers, with efforts being made to include representatives from the European turbomachinery industry. All 228 participants received a final programme, conference proceedings and papers and a questionnaire regarding the event. ETC committee members attended two special meetings to discuss matters related to conference evaluation, the next venue and the body's present and future activities. The conference also offered an ideal forum for presenting the results of European Commission-funded research projects as well as the benefits of Commission-supported research.
