As part of the research work of the InFutUReWood, some project partners attended the 63rd Society of Wood Science and Technology International Convention that took place online due to Covid-19 (formerly in Slovenia) last July. The event was attended by 459 participants from 52 countries. This year the conference was focused on “Renewable Resources for a Sustainable and Healthy Future”. The conference covered a wide range of topics related to timber (timbre engineering, composites, wood modification, preservation, wood chemistry…). The sustainable use and the circular economy of timber in construction were pointed in several presentations.
A total of three research works were elaborated by partners of the InFutUReWood project (Aalto University from Finland, National University of Ireland Galway and University College Dublin from Ireland and Universidad Politécnica de Madrid from Spain) and presented during the conference.
If you missed the conference, presentations and posters are available on YouTube:
