Conference series: Sustainable Building with Wood

Competitive wood-based materials and timber structures

Research and education at Linnaeus University aims to contribute to the transition to a green and climate neutral or even climate positive construction sector. The conference series Sustainable Building with Wood is intended for a wide audience of stakeholders and the academic community interested in current trends, latest knowledge, scientific research and practical examples along the wood construction value chain for increased competitiveness and sustainable development.

The focus of the conference in September 2024 is on wood-based materials and timber structures. Researchers from different universities in Sweden and practicing engineers will present current research and building projects and discuss future challenges and collaboration opportunities.

During the conference, the Carola and Carl-Olof Ternryd's award will be awarded to two distinguished researchers. Carola and Carl-Olof Ternryd's award for outstanding contributions in the forestry sector as well as education, research and development at Linnaeus University is awarded every two years. It is awarded to persons who have made significant contributions in areas within the forestry industry, primarily wood processing. Part of the amount goes to an individual researcher and the other part to a department within the Faculty of Technology at Linnaeus University, in order to establish a long-term collaboration in research and education with the researcher.

More information about Carola and Carl-Olof Ternryd's award (in Swedish) are published at Linnéakademiens forskningsstiftelse. Read more about the award here.
