Some weeks ago, April 25th, WIMBY’s partners had an in-person meeting in Vienna. The city welcomed almost 19.000 attendees for the EGU General Assembly 2023. This international event serves as a global platform that brings together geoscientists from various corners of the world. It aims to foster an environment where scientists can showcase their work, exchange knowledge, and engage discussions with experts across all geoscience fields.
Leveraging the opportunity presented by the Assembly, on April 25th, the WIMBY project partners that participated at the event, capitalized on the occasion to convene in person and organize a meeting. It was a productive occasion to strengthen the cooperation and to recognize that face-to-face interactions facilitate enhanced collaboration and productivity among team members.
The goal of the meeting was to discuss and delve into the project’s key focus areas. In particular, they focused on data and knowledge exchange, as well as on some crucial aspects related to the Web-GIS tool that WIMBY will develop.
Later, they also addressed some of the environmental relevant aspects, ranging from biodiversity to considerations on land use aspects. By considering these factors, the project aims to develop wind energy solutions that are efficient but also sustainable and harmonious with the surrounding environment.
Partners engaged in thought-provoking conversations, exchanging ideas and insights on how to best approach their respective tasks. The exchange of diverse perspectives and ideas contributed to a more clear and goal oriented research.
