The DLR Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IPA) co-chaired this year's WakeNet-Europe Workshop jointly with the DLR Institute of Flight Systems and TU Braunschweig (in cooperation with the National Aerospace Laboratory of the Netherlands (NLR), Eurocontrol, and Thales). Strong participation from numerous European and global aviation stakeholders and presenters sparked a successful workshop, highly appreciated by representatives from the European Commission and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). NLR hosted the workshop in Amsterdam 21/22 April 2015 in combination with the European project UFO (ultra-fast wind sensors) dissemination workshop on 23 April 2015. Two full days with 22 presentations selected by a review process highlighted recent wake turbulence activities from research to operational implementation including lessons learned, with a focus on Europe, but with a global perspective. IPA contributed partly invited talks to both workshops. Some 80 international participants (including USA, Russia, China, Japan, and UAE) evidenced the vitality of multidisciplinary exchange on a variety of wake turbulence topics.
