The aim of the IRPWIND is to foster better integration of European research activities in the field of wind energy research with the aim of accelerating the transition towards a low-carbon economy and maintain and increase European competitiveness. The IRPWIND is expected to both benefit existing priority settings as well as to improve the quality and implementation of future priority settings through the coordinating effect on the research communities. An objective is to integrate the various capacities and resources in the joint research activities in the IRP with other ongoing European and National projects carried out by IRPWIND partners and/or other EERA JP Wind members.

The IRPWIND and EERA joint programme on wind energy provides the strategic leadership for the medium to long term research to support the European Industrial Initiative on Wind Energy in the framework of the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan and provides added value through:

  • Strategic leadership of the underpinning research
  • Joint prioritisation of research tasks and infrastructure
  • Alignment of European and national research efforts
  • Execution of coordinated and structured research in medium to long-term programmes
  • Coordination with industry, and Sharing of knowledge and research infrastructure.
