Wood Material Science Research Programme Homepage Opened

17.08.2004


The Finnish-Swedish Wood Material Science Research Programme (2003-2006) has opened its homepage in the Internet. The web pages contain general information about the co-financed research programme, about its objectives and projects. There are also current information about the research programme and related events.

The Wood Material Science web pages are mainly focused to the researchers, companies, financing organisations and decision makers interested in wood material science and engineering. In addition, the pages act as the work environment for the organisations and researchers participating in the programme.

The Finnish-Swedish Wood Material Science Research Programme is a continuation to the Finnish forest cluster Research Programme Wood Wisdom (1998-2001). The objective of the ongoing research programme is to develop new eco-efficient and cost-effective products, processes and services in order to foster the competitiveness of forestry and forest-based industries by strengthening international multidisciplinary collaboration.



Wood Material Science on the first public and co-financed Finnish-Swedish research programme, which has been carried out in this extent. The basic research projects of the programme started in the spring 2003. These projects are financed by Academy of Finland, Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning (Formas), the National Technology Agency of Finland (Tekes) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in Finland. The second sub-programme focusing on innovations started during the first months of the year 2004. The financing organisations are Tekes and Swedish Agency for Innovation Systems (VINNOVA). The budget of the research programme is around EUR 20 million.

The web pages of the Wood Material Science Research Programme are a part of the programme entity Wood Wisdom, which also covers the WoodWisdom-Net project (2004-2007) building European wood material science programme, the Finnish Centre of Expertice for Wood Products and the previous Finnish Forest Cluster Programme Wood Wisdom.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
