2nd EAWE-WAUDIT Ph.D school

In collaboration with the EU Initial Training Network WAUDIT








The 2nd Ph.D school of the EAWE on wind energy is organized from Monday 7.2.2011 until Friday 11.2.2011, at the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, Sint-Genesius-Rode, Belgium.



EAWEThe European Academy of Wind Energy (http://www.eawe.eu) organizes Wind Energy Schools for all Ph.D researchers in their first years, to provide a general background in wind energy. The EAWE Schools are of great importance for the education of Europe’s future leading Wind Energy researchers. The School is free of charge.

The EAWE Ph.D Schools try to cover all wind energy related topics. The first school was hosted at CENER in May 2010 in Pamplona (Spain) and covered introductory aspects of wind energy. The focus of the second school at VKI will be on wind turbine and wind farm design, as well as scientific writing and presentation techniques. The third and final School of this series is dedicated to economical and environmental aspects and to entrepreneurship and project development. This School will be held from the 24th to the 28th of October 2011 at the Technical University Delft, together with the 7th PhD seminar of the EAWE.

The schools are organized together with the Marie Curie ITN project WAUDIT, which stands for Wind Resource Assessment Audit and Standardization. The WAUDIT part of the school specializes on aspects of meteorology and wind resource assessment. The EAWE part is open for all PhD researchers, the WAUDIT part is for the Ph.D’s in this project. If you are a Ph.D researcher on this topic but outside WAUDIT, and you are interested to attend this part as well, you should contact the local coordinator, Jeroen van Beeck, vanbeeck@vki.ac.be.
