Tuesday 26 February
What was the event?
This workshop presented results from ongoing and current research within the Strategic Integrated Research in Timber (SIRT) project and associated projects. Presentations demonstrated the direct relevance of research results to policy and practice in the forestry and wood using sectors.
The event also included presentations from forest industry representatives highlighting key research requirements, and discussions about future research funding.
This was an opportunity to influence the future direction of these research programmes, and to help focus limited resources on the most important projects.
