Who can take part in Task 32?
To participate in the research activities of Task 32, researchers must reside in a country that participates in the IEA Wind Agreement AND has agreed by official letter to participate in Task 32. 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).
Members of Task 32 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 32 is managed by Operating Agents at the Chair of Wind Energy (SWE) at the University of Stuttgart and the Wind Energy Technology institute (WETI) of the University of Applied Sciences of Flensburg. More information about Task 32’s management structure can be found here.
SWE is responsible for most administrative activities within the Task and is the point of contact of the Task to the IEA Wind Executive Committee (ExCo). SWE is also the first point of contact for Task members.
