To participate in the research activities of Task 31, researchers must reside in a country that participates in the IEA Wind Agreement AND has agreed by official letter to participate in Task 31. The participating member country of the IEA Wind TCP must designate a lead institution that agrees to the obligations of Task participation (pay the annual fee and agree to perform specified parts of the work plan).
Active researchers (performing part of the work plan) benefit from meetings and professional exchange during the term of the Task. Countries participating in the Task benefit from the information developed by the Task. The value of the research performed is many times the cost of the country participation fee or the labor contributed to carrying out the work plan.

Task 31 FAQ //
How can I follow the Task activities?
How much does it cost to subscribe?
What kind of involvement is expected from a participant?
A more significant involvement is required if you become a benchmark manager, since you will have to set up the benchmark guide, generate input/validation data, carry out the assessment based on participant submissions and publish the results. An involvement equivalent to around 1 p-m/year/participant is recommended to provide good traction to the Task.
How are benchmarks organized?
How long does it take to complete a benchmark?
Where is the benchmark data published?
In the absence of these, the default data repository is Zenodo (https://zenodo.org/communities/wakebench/?page=1&size=20).
The Wind Energy Model Evaluation Protocol (WEMEP, https://wemep.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html) provides documentation and links to all the public datasets.
