Who can Participate in Task 32?

To participate in the research activities of Task 32, researchers must reside in a country that participates in the IEA Wind Agreement AND has agreed by official letter to participate in Task 32. The participating member country of the IEA Wind TCP must designate a lead institution that agrees to the obligations of Task participation (pay the annual fee and agree to perform specified parts of the work plan).

Active researchers (performing part of the work plan) benefit from meetings and professional exchange during the term of the Task. Countries participating in the Task benefit from the information developed by the Task. The value of the research performed is many times the cost of the country participation fee or the labor contributed to carrying out the work plan.
