Pests, pathogens and wood properties in focus for five new cooperative ventures

Five new research projects have been initiated with financing from SNS. They all tackle the challenges of an uncertain future.

Three projects will enhance the prospect of the forest withstanding pests and pathogens, with solutions such as early warning systems, decision support for species choice and genetic selection for tolerant trees.

Two projects will improve the utilisation of wood, both for construction timber and for new products in the pharmaceutical and food industries.

All projects start in 2019 and continue for three years.
