July 2017

Ismet Baran has received a VENI grant 250 k€ from NWO (The Netherlands Organization for Scientific research) with “BladeMan” project.

A new research line will be developed within 4 years.


The era of fossil fuels appears to be coming to an end, which is why we desperately need cheap renewable energy sources, such as wind turbines. This Veni project will contribute to the development of more reliable and efficient wind turbines with very large dimensions in future.
