UpWind Integrated Project to Kick Off this April

31.01.2007

The UpWind Project will kick off on April 3 – 4 at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). The FP6 Integrated Project focuses on the development of design tools for new wind turbines after 2010. With a budget of over €22million and EC funding of over €14 million, UpWind is the flagship of European collaborative research into wind turbine development, and is the result of a two year proposal process. It will last five years, and features the collaboration of over forty partners. It is hoped that all will attend the Kick Off Meeting.
