The National Research Programme "Resource Wood" (NRP 66) establishes basic scientific knowledge and practical methods for increasing the availability of wood as a resource and expanding its use. In this context, researchers are collaborating with industry to develop innovative technologies and services for the material, chemical and energetic use of wood with a view to establishing a sustainable material life-cycle management. The research started in January 2012.
