70 participants took part in the workshop.

The workshop "Solution for Leading Edge Erosion" had 70 participants with more than half from industry including 30 different companies. The academic participants from six different institutes joined. Participants from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany and the UK joined the event. The event was organized by and presented at DTU Wind Energy.

This seminar includes eight talks about solutions for leading edge erosion, followed by a workshop panel. The panel featured the speakers, seen from left to right Thomas Gliese (PolyTech), Leon Mishnaevsky Jr. (DTU), Søren Fæster (DTU), Jakob Ilsted Bech (DTU), Steffen Hawkins (Teknos), Kirsten Dyer (ORE Catapult), Witold Skrzypinski (DTU), Christian Damborg (3M Renewable Solutions).
