EFI Bioregions Facility is starting a new series of virtual Forestry Speed Dating events. This second series will feature Bio-based solutions for sustainable construction. The first event of this series, taking place on 17 June 2022, will give an introduction to the series through three presentations related to Key challenges and innovation opportunities for wood construction.
Join us for three presentations from leading wood construction organisations/companies and a discussion about how to overcome wood construction challenges!
The three presentations are:
Main challenges of Slovenia’s biggest timber building – By Iztok Šušteršič, InnoRenew CoE
InnoRenew CoE is an independent research institute that targets renewable materials and sustainable buildings, specifically innovative approaches to wood and its use, with the goal of transferring scientific knowledge into industrial practice. Through hands-on wood construction experience at their own facilities, InnoRenew CoE is very well-placed to outline the challenges in wood construction.

Oslotre specialises in timber architecture and construction technology. The company has more than 12 years of experience in timber architecture, timber engineering, assembly and production of CLT elements.
