Doctorate and research
Interdisciplinary, international, always in a team – right from the start
At ForWind, research takes place at 30 institutes and three universities. Our research partners are the major national research institutions, international universities and numerous industrial partners who enable us to test and validate research and knowledge in practice.
In the ForWind team, everyone gets a direct insight into the diverse fields of wind energy research. Whether as a student assistant or researcher at PostDoc level: ForWind offers the ideal environment to make your own contribution to the success story of wind energy.
Wind and wind energy as a topic of study and research
You want to gain knowledge in your studies but still stay connected to practice?
With us, you can actively work on projects and contribute your own ideas. Contact with our partners from industry and research is as much a part of the job as participation in conferences, symposia and project meetings.
For your projects you use the ForWind infrastructure: our laboratories, computing power and test benches. You’ll be close to our research topics from the start. The cooperation between university and industry partners provides you with insights and perspectives for your further career path.
And you can always enjoy the good feeling of working on one of the important future issues of our time.
From the first semester on, we offer students the opportunity to actively engage with all aspects of wind energy in theory and practice. In terms of time and content, studying and working at ForWind can be optimally coordinated. Your first contact persons at the institutes are the scientific staff, whom you will meet in the courses. Talk to them about whether it’s possible to collaborate during your studies.
