To participate in the research activities of Task 25, researchers must reside in a country that participates in the IEA Wind Agreement AND has agreed by official letter to participate in Task 25.
To join a task, a member country of IEA Wind designates a lead institution that agrees to the obligations of task participation (pay the annual fee and agree to perform specified parts of the work plan).
Researchers active (performing part of the work plan) benefit from meetings and professional exchange during the term of the task.
Countries participating in the task benefit from the information developed by the task. The value of the research performed is many times the cost of the country participation fee or the labor contributed to carrying out the work plan. For example, in the first term of Task 25 the contribution per participant was 7,002 euro (9,747 USD) plus in-kind effort over three years. For this investment each country received the results of labor from all participants representing 9.528 million euro (13.263 million USD).
