PhD and PostDoc

A total of 25 PhD or post doc studies are planned as part of NOWITECH. The following as listed below have started.  In addition to these, there are a number of PhD and post doc students at NTNU doing research on offshore wind, but financed outside NOWITECH. These are listed here.  


NOWITECH facilitates through the Scientific Committee collaboration in their education and studies of the PhD and post doc students.
