SIRT (Strategic Integrated Research in Timber) will be holding a seminar to update on the latest research on timber. The session is open to all and will include summaries on a recently completed PhD project at Edinburgh Napier University looking at properties of minor conifer species. This will be combined with ongoing research from Forest Research and Surrey University (modelling moisture movement in wood), and the very latest research from Edinburgh Napier University. We’ll still have time to fit in the latest news on ongoing research with NUI Galway (including new machine grading settings for Douglas-fir).

The afternoon session will give further updates of the work being carried out at Edinburgh Napier University, the latest research from the timber properties group at Forest Research, and go into the latest developments in standardisation, and set the agenda for research going forward. If you want to know what’s coming before it comes, this is your opportunity.
