Wind Energy Science Conference 2019

The Wind Energy Science Conference (WESC) is taking place next week from the 17th to 20th of June, 2019 in Cork (Ireland). This biennial event is organized by the European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE), and was launched at 2015 in order to complement the scientist Torque conferences.

The conference offers an open forum for discussion which spans the traditional scientific borders. Wind Energy scientists and engineers are given the opportunity to present their latest findings and discuss the challenges which they have faced with a multi-disciplinary community.

This year WESC 2019 is comprised of seven themes which cover the main scientific topics in wind energy science and an eighth theme which is left open for more cross cutting sessions.

As a part of the wind energy community, CL-Windcon will participate leading a Mini-Symposium about wind farm control.

Register now to Mission Innovation Champions

Mission Innovation Champions is a new recognition program to celebrate and support innovative individuals who are accelerating the clean energy revolution. The program was launched at the occasion of the Third Mission Innovation Ministerial (MI-3) on 22-23 May 2018 at Malmö, Sweden, and is currently accepting registrations.

The program will recognize exceptional researchers and innovators who are developing novel ways of making energy cleaner, cheaper, and more reliable and using it more efficiently –  calling worldwide attention to the most promising ideas from across the globe. This program is part of the global initiative Mission Innovation and will contribute to its objectives by fostering cross-border exchanges of ideas and talent, while also raising a greater awareness amongst the wider clean energy community of the transformational potential of energy innovation.

Mission Innovation Champions are individuals with a track record of progressing creative new ideas that can drive the pace and scale of the clean energy revolution—the people who are inventing the products and services of the future or discovering the science that underpins them. They may be working in government laboratories, local universities, long-standing research firms, or their own recently launched clean technology start-up companies. Champions may be from “traditional” inventor disciplines such as sciences, engineering, mathematics, and architecture or from other fields.

One Champion from each Mission Innovation member participating in the program will be selected. Participating countries include: Australia, Austria, Canada, China, Denmark, European Commission, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, and the United Arab Emirates.

The Champion for the European Commission will be selected from a European Union country that is not an individual member of Mission Innovation; this means : Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain).
