The Aura CDT is the result of long term and extensive collaboration between the academic and key industry partners. We currently have over 20 industry partners, helping to ensure the training and experience provided in the CDT addresses the broad range of challenges that the offshore wind industry faces.
The Aura CDT’s six research themes were informed by a series of industry workshops facilitated by Aura. This collaborative approach will continue throughout the life of the CDT to ensure it remains aligned to industry priorities.
The interdisciplinary nature of the OSW industry means that there are a wide range of stakeholders including large and small companies who are active at different stages of OSW farm development. Our industry partners are representative of this range. They will be involved in delivering training and offering placements, as well as providing industry supervision, ensuring that students are exposed to current offshore wind issues throughout their time at the CDT. Some PhD projects will be defined in consultation with industry; others directly defined by partner companies.
