Abstract The European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE) is an academic consortium of European Universities in which the UK's Supergen Wind Consortium members are partners.The EAWE runs a PhD Seminar to increase understanding and interaction between research students working in the field of wind energy coming from > 7 countries in Europe.In 2009 the EPSRC Supergen Wind Consortium in UK is hosting the EAWE PhD Seminar at Durham University, the location of the Principal Investigator of Supergen Wind.We expect 70 plus students and their Supervisors to attend, with up to 20 students coming from the UK.The Seminar will include keynote educational talks from leading wind energy authorities in the UK, including Andrew Garrad of Garrad Hassan, leaders of the Supergen Wind Consortium, and an educational visit to the New & Renewable Energy Centre (NaREC) wind turbine blade testing facilities at Blyth in Northumberland.This application is to fund the educational aspects of the Seminar, steps are being taken to secure matched funds from industrial sources.The application is made more than 12 weeks before the planned event as requested in the EPSRC website
