Award for the best oral presentation and award for the best poster
All PhD students and master students compete for the award for the best oral presentation and for the best poster presentation. The jury consists of the national coordinators for the Northern European Network of Wood Science and Engineering.
This year’s award is sponsored by Finnish Forest Industries Federation.
Finland is one of the world's largest producer of pulp, paper and paperboard in addition to being one of Europe's largest producers of sawn timber. The forest industry directly and indirectly employs approximately 140,000 Finns. The industry's multiplier effects extend broadly into surrounding society. Finland has a unique opportunity to pioneer the bioeconomy thanks to the abundant forest resources, sustainable forestry practices and the first-rate expertise and competence of the forest cluster as a whole.
