The focus will be on transfers of good practices initiated in the frame of the Horizon 2020 project WinWind. The event will also highlight relevant good practices which have been or are being transferred outside the WinWind project context.

The workshop will involve WinWind project partners, representatives from the WinWind transfer teams in the learning regions, mentoring experts and other interested actors, including stakeholders participating in the WinWind country desks.
