Aalborg University is a dynamic and innovative research and educational institution with an active commitment to international cooperation. All research activities at Aalborg University are problem and project-based and have an interdisciplinary focus.
Aalborg University supplies the I4Offhsore consortium with world-leading academic knowledge and know-how on offshore foundations, risk analysis and supply chain management of wind energy technology.
400+ researchers at Aalborg University (AAU) are engaged in decarbonizing the energy system. Wind energy research areas include e.g.: offshore geotechnics, foundations, substructures, turbine blades, power electronics, regulation of turbines and of blades and wind farms, and logistics in the production, installation and operation of offshore wind turbines.
I4Offshore is the perfect means for AAU to expand its prominent position in the development of the wind energy technology of the near future. By contributing to the creation of the next generation of turbines going from 10 to 20 megawatts, AAU will be brought in a frontrunner position.
The initiative unites the value chain of offshore wind energy technology in efforts to pave innovative ways for implementing offshore wind energy as the backbone of the sustainable, decarbonized energy system.
AAU is lead of the administrative project management as well as the communication strategy of i4Offshore. This means performing tasks of coordination between partners of this ambitious EU-project, as well as academic dissemination and communication about progress, innovations and impact to a wider audience
