Workshop Sweden course material

Due to Covid the workshop had to be postponed but in May 2022 the Linnaeus University prepared a 7 day workshop in Växjö for 10 Icelandic, 6 Swedish and 6 Danish students. In addition participated the teachers and specialists from LbhI, Trétækniráðgjöf and the national Forest Service of Iceland. This course/workshop included classroom lessons, excursions, practical exercises. Many guest lecturer participated in the workshop. Focus was laid on sustainable forestry industry chains – from forests to products. The workshop programme included an overview over the latest relevant research projects conducted at LNU.

This gave students the possibility to learn and discuss latest trends and perspectives in wood-related timber use. Furthermore it was dealt with transport chains (technologies), harvesting technologies, wood processing (timber drying, sawing, etc.) and relevant standards in wood processing. Those findings enabled the students to take home lessons from Swedish experiences and gave them valuable input for their own work-related challenges in their home countries. The output is an online version of the workshop curriculum that includes teaching materials, presentations, relevant literature references, video tutorials. All outputs were published on the Teaching Platform.
