Conferences, seminars and study visits
Treesearch creates recurring meeting places to promote collaboration between academia, industry and research institutes. Within Treesearch there are conference concepts that describe different types of activities, ranging from large multi-day conferences to smaller study visits. Read more about the conference concepts below.
Scientific conference with speakers from Treesearch’s organisation that presents the progress of the platform and invited speakers featuring the latest scientific advances. The main focus is to create a recurring meeting place for internal knowledge integration within Treesearch and to strengthen the vision.
The first Treesearch Progress was held 7-8 May 2019 at Vildmarkshotellet, Kolmården.
Treesearch Scientific Sessions
A seminar series with scientific relevance to Treesearch’s 4 thematic research areas focusing on a particular subject per event. Often shorter seminars or one-day activities focusing on a particular topic and arranged by researchers in Treesearch. Usually held in premises at higher education institutions and may have invited speakers.
An example of a Treesearch Scienctific Session was the hemicellulose seminar in April 2018, arranged by researchers within WWSC.
Future-oriented conferences and events with a mix of science and social issues. Can be targeted at specific groups such as students, doctoral students or the public.
One example was the Treesearch conference held during SPCI&Friends ant Gröna Lund, 2018.
All study visits that occur between Treesearch partners will be listed as Treesearch Meet. These are held to expand cooperation between partners in Treesearch and create contacts between organisations.
Event that supports and accompanies calls for research funding that are related to Treesearch’s research areas. Matchmaking events are targeted at Treesearch partners and associates and aim at connecting participants to develop ideas for proposals through pitch and mingle sessions.

One example was the Treesearch Matchmaking connected to the BioInnovation Call “PhD and post-doc projects for resource efficient industrial processes” held online in February 2021.
