We invited more than 20 students and young researchers from different disciplines to Kathmandu, Nepal and took a deep dive into the methods and concepts of transdisciplinary research. Here, participants share their experinces.
Our collaborative project partner Wind Empowerment recently published some video footage about their work in the rural areas of Argentina and it become quite apparent to see here: They had great joy in setting up their self-constructed wind-water turbines! Take a look for yourself, watch this informative video about small wind turbines and their impact on rural areas and learn more about our projects with Wind Empowerment! Wind Empowerment Blog

During 2019 we implemented the Project: “Improvement and diffusion of the water pumping system with wind energy and electronic control. Solutions for rural residents of the Patagonian steppe of Argentina.” The objective that we share between Fundación 500RPM and LCA-UNSL (Laboratory of Automatic Control of the National University of San Luis), is to develop a robust, effective, efficient and accessible pumping system for rural residents of Argentina and the world. The developed system consists of: a 350W Piggott wind turbine; a diaphragm pump (popularly known as a “toad pump”); an electronic system consisting of a small bicycle motor and an electronic board (this allows the system to be operated without the use of batteries).
