This two-week full-time residential programme will take place from 26th August – 6th September in Helsinki (first week) and Gothenburg (second week), where you will learn about the mitigation potential of wood construction in climate change as well as its important role in the emerging bioeconomy.
Turn your research into practice with our two-week EIT Climate-KIC Summer School on wood construction in climate change mitigation. In the future, we will think of wood buildings not just as living or working places, but also as “temporal carbon storage” that will ideally be recirculated into new buildings. The wood material contained will be a valuable resource that not only performs its technical function in the building but it will also store carbon and substitute energy intensive materials, thereby helping to mitigate climate change.
To reflect this value, great care will be taken to analyse the entire wood supply chain, to understand the stakeholder ecosystem and to design the wood products, structures and buildings so that wood can be used in the best overall way to help combat climate change.
Come and join our programme to learn about the unique potential that wood has to mitigate climate change and advance the transition to bioeconomy!
