About project

One of the possible ways to meet the principles of sustainable development is the utilization of wood and wood-based materials with a higher added value, which would meet the requirements of special applications as well as the requirements laid on eco-friendly materials. The aim of this project is to create an international science and research team focusing on the development of new materials using renewable resources, especially wood. The target group is the students of universities outside Prague (mainly Mendel University in Brno, Faculty of Forestry and Wood Technology), academia and other employees of universities and research institutes. The newly established team will be managed by top foreign experts with links to excellent workplaces abroad and experience in R&D in the given field. The target group of students will gain latest information from the field and will extend their professional knowledge beyond the range typically taught within the curriculum. The academic and other employees of universities will be able to extend their knowledge and experience in the field of R&D application and to transfer them to the teaching process.
