EWEM Summer School 2014Friday, June 20, 2014

The first EWEM Summer School was held successfully  in Delft on 12,13 and 14 June 2014! Thanks to all the guest lecturers and especially thanks to all the students is was a brilliant première!

Except from the lectures, students and guests participated in the networking fair, the vivid debate about wind energy costs and the exciting workshop which resulted in building a working wind turbine! On the last day of the Summer School, EWEM went offshore for a close-up of the Windpark Egmond aan Zee! A photo impression of the summer school is given below.
