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.
During the course, participants built a 2F Piggott turbine, which is similar in design to Hugh Piggott’s Recipe Book turbine but has a diameter of 2 metres and uses Ferrite magnets in its axial flux alternator. The students in the course were between 13 and 16 years old and proved to be very ambitious, whereas the Lycée Technique d’Ettelbruck provided excellent equipment.
Windmobile put together a diverse programme for conference guests and students of the Lycée Technique d’Ettelbruck. Network members discussed the progress in Wind Empowerment‘s work, small wind turbine building courses and their impacts, open source technology in the field of (power) electronics, and various other aspects.
