A Strategic Research Partnership
This nationally co-ordinated R&D effort addressed industry issues under five distinct yet complementary areas. Specific research projects currently underway are listed under each of these key research areas:
To maximize benefits for Canadian wood product manufacturers,
the initiative is drawing from the wide array of competencies and capabilities
available in five wood research organisations across Canada:
This R&D effort is guided by a Research Advisory Committee composed
of representatives selected from wood product manufacturing companies of
all sizes, product types and regions across Canada. In providing strategic
guidance, the Committee identifies research needs, reviews research proposals
and recommends funding for those most likely to result in improved competitiveness
and profitability for the Canadian value-added wood product industry.
All Canadian wood product manufacturers (please register first) can suggest
a research topic for consideration by the Committee.
