Visiting researchers from France

InnoRenew CoE hosted Dr Eduardo Robles Barrios and Elsa Duret, a PhD student, from the Institute of Analytical Sciences and Physico-Chemistry for Environment and Materials (IPREM) at the University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour (UPPA), France.

They spent two weeks at InnoRenew CoE mostly working with researchers from the wood modification research group on the topic of the Proteus project. In this project they want to improve wood resistance against fire through innovative surface modification treatments that replace harmful elements with natural or renewable compounds with lower toxicity.
