Proposals are invited for collaborative research projects to undertake fundamental research that will underpin the development of Wind Energy technologies. The following themes have been identified as priority areas for the remit of this call.

  • Turbine Component Development
  • Foundation Systems
  • Asset Management
  • Whole-Systems Understanding

For each project application there should be a single submission with a single PI. The institutions involved in the successful proposals will be expected to become members of the SUPERGEN Wind Hub.

The call closes at 16:00 on 26 February 2015. Up to £3M is available for this call. The duration of the grant(s) may be up to three years.

Anyone intending to submit a proposal to this call must register their intent by email to by 16:00 on 20 January 2015, including in the email any project partners, names of the PI and any Co-Is, the subject area and an approximate value of funds to be requested. Please note that this is not intended to restrict detail in the final submission as changes will be allowed, but will give us an indication of the level of interest and enable the prompt identification of reviewers. Applicants that do not register their intent will have their applications rejected.
