The EERA DeepWind conference has been presenting the best on-going offshore wind R&D since 2004. It has provided a forum for researchers, experts and industry leaders in wind power and offshore wind. The conference is a joint project of NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), SINTEF and the European Energy Research Alliance.
This year the event will be held online through the OnAIR platform, which will allow participants to ask questions to speakers and discuss with fellow experts.
