Innovative wood-based materials: workshop to mark the start of interzum
Using wood in construction and home decor is becoming increasingly attractive. The Sixth Innovation Workshop for Wood-Based Materials on 15 May 2017 will examine current developments in this field. Talks, discussions and a chance to take part in a televoting poll on the innovations presented will provide plenty of inspiration for participants.
Wood is currently in high demand as a material for furniture and interior construction. Today innovative materials and machining processes are opening up new possibilities for its use. Wood-based materials are becoming lighter, more efficient and more sustainable. The construction-related field is one area in particular where the German wood-based panel industry was able to expand its output last year. There is now growing recognition of wood’s potential in construction and home decor.
interzum is providing an overview of the innovations developed by researchers and the industry at the Sixth Innovation Workshop for Wood-Based Materials. The event will focus on new applications in furniture, vehicle, exhibition and interior construction. Acclaimed experts will present current innovations and the latest research results. Short talks and a concluding plenary discussion will offer participants wide-ranging insights into wood-based innovations.
The workshop marks the opening of interzum 2017 and will demonstrate how the industry is addressing current challenges. At the end of the event, participants will have the chance to rate the innovations presented in a televoting poll. The next day trade fair visitors will be able to see the innovations by the wood-based materials industry for themselves at interzum.
The workshop is organised by the Association of the German Wood-Based Panel Industry (VHI) in close collaboration with the Institute for Wood Technology Dresden (ihd) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research (WKI). Interested companies and individuals have until 24 April 2017 to register for the workshop (german language).
