NRP 66 covers a total of 30 research projects. These reflect the broad spectrum of new approaches to the use of wood and offer solutions for a better availability of raw wood and sustainable life-cycle management.
When the programme started, research was structured into six thematic research modules. In view of implementation activities, the Steering Committee defined four dialogue fields at the end of 2013. They cover the essential aspects of the forest-wood-value-chain and are developed collaboratively with representatives from the economy, politics as well as cantonal and federal offices.
Since 2014, the following four thematic dialogue platforms facilitate inter- and transdisciplinary work within NRP 66:
- Dialogue field 1: Advancements in timber constructions
- Dialogue field 2: Novel ways in bio-refining of wood
- Dialogue field 3: Innovative wood-based materials for new applications
- Dialogue field 4: Provisioning and sustainable use of wood
- All projects
