Preparing a strong academic team to support the current and future Belgian offshore wind energy sector
Ghent University is proud to be the consortium leader of PhairywinD, a brand new offshore wind energy project. The main objective of this project is to prepare a community of nine PhD researchers from different Belgian knowledge institutes to tackle the current and future challenges of the Belgian offshore wind energy sector together.
The Belgian offshore wind zone is expanding, with 2.2 GW already installed and brand new zones being tendered. To ensure our place as frontrunners of wind energy in Europe and to stay on the forefront of technology trends and scientific advances, our industry needs a strong academic home base. And that is exactly what the PhairywinD project is all about.
