Event description


You are invited to participate in the Final Workshop of the New European Wind Atlas (NEWA) where we will present the highlights of the project.

The workshop is a side event of the WindEurope Conference & Exhibition 2019. Once you have secured your place with this registration, you can access the workshop with your exhibition or conference pass.

You can find practical information about the venue at the conference website.
