WESC wants to provide a multi-disciplinary open forum for discussion where delegates can explore the latest developments in wind energy science, spot emerging trends and identify future collaborators

ROMEO project will be present at the Wind Energy Science Conference (WESC) a biennial event organised by the European Academy of Wind Energy, from 17th to 20th of June in Cork, Ireland. The conference offers an open forum for discussion which spans the traditional scientific borders. All the participants will discover the latest findings and discuss the challenges of the offshore industry with a multi-disciplinary community.

The conference covers all Wind Energy scientific topics and is organised in close collaboration with the open -access JWES. presenters will be invited to submit their work to this journal.

WESC 2019 is comprised of 7 Themes which cover the main scientific topics in wind energy science and an 8th Theme which is left open for more cross cutting sessions.  Each Theme will have its own dedicated lecture theatre for the duration of WESC 2019 and will host between 11 and 20 sessions.

A key part of the WESC philosophy is to provide delegates the opportunity to shape the conference and set the agenda by proposing and chairing mini-symposia (MS) on topics which they feel are important to the future development of the wind energy research community. ROMEO project will take part in the 5th theme, “Turbine Lifecycle Considerations”. In our session we will be talking about the latest advances in the project, such as, solutions for the diagnosis and prognosis of critical failure modes, as well as improved structural health monitoring approaches for wind turbines. These innovations will be demonstrated during the project.

ROMEO Project promotes research and innovation, and its objective is to develop advanced technological solutions that enable the operation and maintenance costs of offshore wind farms to be reduced. ROMEO project is an initiative sustained by the EU through its H2020.

WESC has received 65 high quality MS proposal from 30 research institutions across 12 countries. These MS span all 8 WESC Themes and will help to ensure that this event is a truly international, multidisciplinary, open forum for discussion.
