To reach its objectives, the project will join a nine partnership European consortium, led by key industrial stakeholders of the wind turbine industry, in cooperation with a group of R&D centres and SMEs with complementary skills and expertise to support design, testing and dissemination activities.
The project partners are strongly committed to work together and to include all the necessary resources to deal with the scheduled project work plan. It brings together 9 partners from 6 European Union member countries (Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Spain and United Kingdom).
Partners represent Member States throughout Europe, so that the project has a clear European dimension that will allow an easier pooling of competences and a wider and faster impact on the energy field.
