Wood, Science, and Wellbeing

Our aim

We add value for sustainably sourced wood by creating novel knowledge on wood formation, properties, and quality as fiber - and building raw material. We are especially interested in creating new ways to utilize forestry side streams, and bioinnovate biohybrid materials that store carbon in long term uses, while applying the principles of circular economy and cascading processing. We also seek to build fundamental and applied understanding on the human-wood interactions and holistic wellbeing and resilience in built environments.
