Far removed from any romantic concepts of the forest, a gigantic axe draws the attention of people passing through the entrance halls of universities and congress centres to the National Research Programme "Resource Wood" (NRP 66).
The impressive advertising wall summarises the aims of the programme and illustrates the versatility of the resource wood by listing all thirty research projects. The exhibition wants to arouse the curiosity of the visitors as well as encourage them to learn more about this hitherto unrecognised raw material.
The travelling exhibition of NRP 66 is conceived for institutions participating in the research programme but is available for free to any interested party such as federal or cantonal offices or non-governmental organisations.
