BMWF and FHP agreed to establish postgraduade studies “Wood – A value added good with perspektive in future” (DokIn’Holz). Each postgraduade study is indended to provide a part on the value added chain. Overall all the studies are bound to represent a sustainable use of the wood.
The cooperation FHP decided to put 11 topics on the agenda for this project: These topics are: Saving the forestry primary production with the aspect on risk and unsaftyness, develop a model on supply-chain-management and new technologies for a more efficient processing of softwood, fundamental reseach for chemical and mechanical pulping of wood, aging effects on cellulose based materials, models to describe stiffness in cellulose fibers, modelling for a description of mechanical properties of wood, laminated beam and plywood with consideration of the nonlinearity of material- and wood structure and research on connecting components for a more efficient use of wood as and resource in the the building industry.
The project is a conglomerate of 11 sub-projects. These sub-project are elaborated by University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, TU Wien, TU Graz and University of Innsbruck.
