HydroFlex will arrange a series of thematic Workshop/Training Seminars open to the public. Stakeholders from the hydropower industry and academia will be invited, and the potential to cooperate with other similar EU funded projects will be sought. Through our network, contacts with relevant business press and freelance journalists working in the energy field will be invited to cover the events. At least four public workshop/training seminars will be arranged:
- Workshop /Training Seminar with a focus on flexibility of hydraulic turbines. It will be organized by NTNU in connection with the Francis-99 workshop in May 2019 (100-150 participants).
