Task 32's Management Structure

Task Structure

As with any IEA Task, the Operating Agent is responsible for the management of the Task and is the single point of contact of the task with the IEA Wind Executive Committee (ExCo). In addition, an Advisory Board with key experts from academia and industry assists the Operating Agent to align workshop topics to actual needs, and to keep the Task useful for the whole community.

The workshops are organized by the Operating Agent together with the Advisory Board and Workshop Leaders (WL) who are deeply knowledgeable about the workshop topic.
