Project: Optimization of forest resources in construction

Acronym: OPTIMIZEDWOOD
Main Objective: The main objective of this project is to develop and validate a wood-based product for structural application with many innovative features.
The product to develop will be innovative in various perspectives, such as: optimization of structural and non-structural performance of the
own panel, possibility of improvement of electromagnetic shielding, more rational use of raw materials and increased value of national species
of wood. The research will also include the development of connection technology between the panels themselves but also the compatibility
of these with the existing building.
