Exploring the Future of Floating Wind Energy


You are warmly invited to an insightful exploration of floating wind energy at our "Women in Floating Wind" event. Join us for an afternoon of discovery and discussion, where we will delve into the exciting advancements and opportunities in this dynamic industry.

Meet our esteemed speakers:

Axelle Viré, Full Professor of Floating Wind Energy at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering and Scientific Director of the Floating Renewables Lab, offers a unique perspective. Leading pioneering research with her team, Axelle tackles academic challenges while providing invaluable insights into the intersection of floating wind technology and academia.

Elisa Romero Pascual, Product Lead Floating Wind at Heerema Engineering Solutions (HES), presents another distinctive viewpoint. Collaborating with her team, Elisa actively addresses industry challenges, contributing to the commercialization of offshore floating wind.

Together, Axelle and Elisa offer unparalleled insights into the role of women in engineering, spanning academia and industry.


In the landscape of TU Delft, the Green Village is quite the stand out! This field lab for sustainable innovation in the urban environment is quite literally the starting ground for future sustainability innovations. We are therefore thrilled to be able to host an event in their Co-Creation Centre (CCC).
