EERA DeepWind 2023

The 20th edition of the EERA DeepWind conference gathered a record number of participants, 18-20 January, in person for the first time since the pandemic. Read our Summary of EERA DeepWind 2023 and check out the various awards that were given this year.

EERA DeepWind 2023 is an international event aiming to present the best ongoing research and innovation related to deep sea offshore wind farms, both bottom-fixed and floating. The conference has been developing every year since 2004, and is established as an important venue on deep sea offshore wind R&D organized by SINTEF, NTNU and EERA JP wind.

The programme included a mix of plenary presentations with broad appeal and presentations in parallel sessions or by posters on specific science and technology themes. Presenters get the opportunity to publish in an open access journal, IOP: Special DeepWind issue of The Journal of Physics, subject to a successful peer review.
