Reason for participating in POWER cluster

TU Delft/DUWIND is participating in POWER cluster with special interest in the project parts on Knowledge Dissemination, Education and Skills. Especially the development of educational modules for current BSc and current and future MSc curricula is a reason for participation, as well as the development of qualification standards for the future offshore wind energy labour force.

In the preceding POWER Interreg III programme TUDelft was one of the major partners organising the Offshore Wind Energy Summer schools given in Bremerhaven, Germany (2006) and Lowestoft, UK (2007). Further information can be found on the DUWIND Website www.duwind.tudelft.nl
