InnoRenew CoE prepared a series of eight lectures within the framework of the “Competence center for human resources development in woodworking (KOCles 3.0)” project. InnoRenew CoE researchers will be teaching project partners about aspects of wood science and wood products.
The first lecture about engineered wood products for advanced lightweight frame structures and massive wood structures took place on 6 September 2021.
Dr David B. DeVallance and Dr Iztok Šušteršič presented an overview of the topic to the participants as well as information about energy efficiency and design aspects for lightweight wood frame construction and mass timber buildings. They also discussed properties of engineered wood products relevant for advanced lightweight wood frame construction and mass timber buildings, contemporary connections in timber structures, green building standards and bio-based materials.
KOCles 3.0. seeks to establish and develop a competence center for human resources development in woodworking that will increase employee’s skills, support companies’ competitiveness and enhance the exchange of knowledge and good practices.
