WOOD – SCIENCE – ECONOMY is an international scientific conference organized by the Wood Technology Institute and the State Forests.

Both in Poland and abroad scientific conferences have so far been organized separately by the scientists in the field of forestry and those in the field of wood industry. However, the issues regarding forestry and wood management are so complex that they require multidisciplinary approach and new, innovative technological and organizational solutions. In the modern world fast exchange of the latest knowledge from the perspective of the entire wood chain is necessary.

The aim of the conference is to internationally exchange knowledge about the latest research findings in forestry and wood science and in the related fields, as well as about the achievements and possibilities of their practical use in the forestry and wood sector and the economy. This will not only facilitate the increase in research level in this field, but also identification of research trends with the greatest potential for implementation.

The conference encompasses the following topics:

  • Increasing wood resources and their efficient use
  • Innovation in the forestry and wood sector
