FLOAting Wind Energy netwoRk

Project description

Towards ensuring smooth sailing for floating wind farms

Wind is a renewable source of energy that is both plentiful and free. Since the first windmill created in 1887 in Glasgow, wind-generated power uptake has been expanding and becoming more and more efficient. Since 90 % of wind energy is produced inland, space is becoming scarce for new installations. Floating offshore wind (FOW) is a unique opportunity for Europe. The EU-funded FLOAWER project will train 13 early stage researchers (ESRs) to design better performing, economically viable floating wind turbines. The project’s multidisciplinary approach will train and endow these ESRs with the requisite scientific, technical, and soft skills to become high-profile scientists and engineers, enhancing their career prospects while addressing offshore wind energy industry needs.
