> Wind power goes offshore
The future of renewable energies also lies beyond the shore, at sea. This is particularly the case for harnessing wind energy in the open seas. Engineering research is needed to make these structures work. Discover the variety of scientific research being conducted around offshore wind turbines.

> Turbulence as seen by Leonardo Da Vinci
How was Leonardo da Vinci able to observe phenomena in fluid mechanics that are impossible to see with the naked eye, without the modern tools we have today? The boundaries between art and science are disappearing, as are those of time, with two pieces of research conducted more than 500 years apart!
