About Universität Rostock

Tradition and innovation are the trademarks of our almost 600-year history. Today, with 2,200 employees and 15,000 students, the University of Rostock offers fascinating perspectives into nearly all scientific fields. With the four profile lines Life, Light and Matter / Maritime Systems / Aging Science and Humanities / Knowledge – Culture – Transformation, the University of Rostock has at its disposal excellent interdisciplinary research fields in the areas of natural and technological sciences, medicine, life sciences, humanities and cultural studies. The standard set for all our actions: we want to impress with our performance.

From the University Rostock two chairs will in involved into the project. The first chair dealing with technical issues. The second one dealing with social and communication science.

The Chair of Wind Energy Technology (LWET), endowed by the wind turbine manufacturer Nordex SE, was founded in 2014. The focus of the Chair is industry-oriented research both onshore and offshore wind energy. Further the specialization wind energy technology as part of the master course mechanical engineering at the University of Rostock will be built up. The aim is to prepare graduates for their future tasks in the industry (wind industry and related industries). LWETis specialised on : Virtual wind turbines (improvement of simulation methods, validation of results, simulation-assisted optimization of wind turbines); Economic efficiency (weight and cost reduction, rotor blades, towers, improved control algorithms; Measurements  (wind field, wind turbine, operation of research turbine); Grid integration of wind power (decentralized, storage, grid codes) and Decommission and logistical aspects and Risk Assessment

Research topics from the second involved chair at the Institute for Media Research (IfM) are: Science Communication; Risk and Hazard Communication; Public Engagement with Science; Technology and Technological Impact on Society and Culture Assessment

Role in the Project

The LWET will be involved in WP6 and WP9. Whereas in WP6 the LWET is available for the Energy@Sea maintenance hub and the risk assessment. In WP9 the Chair is involved in transshipment and storage concepts under the maintenance point of view.

The IfM will be involved in WP7. In WP7 the IfM is available for research on current and future inhabitants and other stakeholders. Furthermore the institute is involved in the evaluation of the integration and demonstration. Generally the Institute works on social acceptance and the communicative strategy of the project (inreach and outreach).

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 774253.

The SPACE@SEA project spans three years, running from November 1st, 2017 to November 1st, 2020.
