IPOS – Swedish wood – Innovation potential for the bio-based society

The project ran between August 2017 and September 2021.

The purpose with the IPOS coordination project was to gather competence and creating a powerful force developing new materials, processes, products, and manufacturing methods based on Swedish wood raw material, with a focus on pine. IPOS, Swedish wood- Innovation potential for the biobased society, was a coordination project within BioInnovation Construction & Design.

The coordination project was led by Karin Sandberg RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. There are four sub-projects (SP);

IPOS dealt with innovation in wood-based building materials for various applications and creates conditions for efficient and sustainable manufacturing of these. Through collaboration and sharing of knowledge the individual sub-projects contributed to make “Swedish wood” more competitive and environmentally friendly material in products on the global market.
