The SETWind project supports the implementation of the SET-Plan Implementation Plan for Offshore Wind. The proposal has been developed in consultation with the Temporary Working group that authored the Implementation Plan and key stakeholder organisations including ETIPWIND, WindEurope, the EERA Joint Programme for Wind Energy, the IEA Wind TCP and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre in Petten.
The SETWind project will update and work with the Implementation Plan to maintain it as a dynamic reference point for offshore wind energy research and innovation.
It will monitor and report on progress towards the Implementation Plan targets of 1090 million € to be invested in R&I in the offshore sector until 2030.
It will strengthen policy coordination in European offshore wind energy R&I policy by supporting the work of the SET-Plan Implementation Group for Offshore Wind.
It will facilitate a breakthrough in the coordination across borders of nationally funded R&I projects.
How to participate
This video introduces SETWind project and explains the opportunities and the steps to participate to the Institutional Alignment projects.
Here you can find the template for presenting your cross-border project with all the information.
Building on the insights of the SET-Plan and the expectations to its implementation described in the Implementation Plan, SETWind will focus on four objectives:
Increase cross-border coordination of national research in wind energy
Support the development of the “rolling agenda” of R&I priorities in the Implementation Plan.
Continue policy coordination between national funding agencies
