Working Group 2
Working Group 2 (Culture)
This working group aims to contribute to solving the second Grand Challenge of Digitalisation in Wind Energy “Connecting people and data to foster innovation”, which is related to the topic of “culture”.
The tasks of this WG include:
Skills toolbox creation
We are developing a “skills” toolbox for organisations to provide teams and team leaders with the necessary digital skills. This will include communication skills, priority-setting skills in the fast-moving digital world, building trust, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion related skills.
Creation of a funding opportunities list
We are publishing and curating a list of national and international funding opportunities for key topics related to “culture”.
Develop tools for pilot project sandboxes
We are developing and providing tools and guidelines to help organisations create sandboxes that can be used for pilot projects, ultimately creating cultures that allow new types of innovation and change.
We are writing a recommendations paper for how to connect people and data to foster innovation in wind energy.
Creation of a network for interdisciplinary collaboration
As well as the Grand Challenges of Digitalisation in Wind Energy paper that was produced as part of IEA Wind Task 43, a separate paper called the “Grand Challenges of Social Sciences in Wind Energy” is being lead by DTU Wind in Denmark. Using these papers as a starting point, we are creating a network for the exchange of knowledge and experience for interdisciplinary topics relevant to digitalisation.
Implementation of demonstration projects
We are using the results of the rest of this WG to implement projects that demonstrate how to connect people and data to foster innovation in wind energy.
