Smart Wood Center OWL – New center of expertise by and for all industry players as well as for the next generation.
The region Ostwestfalen-Lippe (OWL) is already home to a differentiated cluster of the wood industry, furniture industry and the corresponding component supplying industry with a continuous value-added chain from the forest to the end product. The goal of the Smart Wood Center is to increase the use of regional wood through networking, research and development, as well as education and training. Furthermore, it aims to strengthen the competitiveness of member companies and start-ups. The long-term goal is to create a competence center by and for all industry players, as well as for the next generation. It should be a neutral place of cooperation, bringing together education, business, science and public associations.
The Smart Wood Center OWL is open to start-ups, companies and research groups in the forest and wood sector. If you are interested, please contact Prof. Katja Fruehwald.
