The INNTERESTING project is formed by a consortium that brings together eight partners from three European countries distributed as follows:

- Three R&D centres, IKERLAN (project coordinator, Spain), VTT (Finland), VITO (Belgium) and one university, KU Leuven (Belgium) that will bring their specific developments from TRL2 to TRL4;
- In terms of industrial involvement, two manufacturers of wind turbine components (end-users of the technology designed): LAULAGUN (Spain), with extensive experience in the manufacture of large bearings for both onshore and off-shore wind turbines, and MOVENTAS (Finland), leading company in the wind sector that develops and manufactures wind turbine gearboxes and related technologies;
- One global player in the field of Computer-Aided Engineering simulation and testing solutions, Siemens Industry Software (Belgium);
- One non-profit private industry-driven organization that integrates a wide variety of stakeholders in the value chain of the energy sector, Basque Energy Cluster (Spain).
