The network is established in 2004 and it currently involves universities and research institutions from 10 partner countries. The goal of the network is to promote collaboration between Northern European senior researchers, PhD students and industrial representatives within wood science and engineering. Scientific exchange in the field is extremely important and it will strengthen the initiatives undertaken by various members.
The conference will cover the following themes:
- Wood physics and mechanics
- Wood protection and modification, durability
- Wood engineering
- Engineered wood products & composites
- Application of wood based materials
This year the focus of the conference is in utilization of wood characteristics in constructions and novel wood products. Besides a one day PhD course will be arranged for the PhD students and early stage researchers before the conference, 30th November.
