Online conference: Treesearch Industrial Postdoc Program

May 7 2020
10.00 – 14.30, online

Welcome to the  first presentation of the Treesearch Industrial Postdoc Program on May 7! In this online conference you will hear industry and academy together present research projects from the recently initiated Treesearch Industrial Postdoc program, taking industrial challenges to research activities at the universities. 

The Swedish industry using the forest as raw material for material production is standing in front of a massive challenge: How can we find ways to use the forest in new materials to help Sweden become a  biobased economy? The answer is clear – by research! In this online conference we will bring out examples of industrial challenges that is being solved and developed in collaboration with the researchers from academies in the Treesearch Industrial Postdoc program. 

This conference is arranged as an online conference due to covid-19. You can join the full day or part of the day by registering to the webinar, where you also can interact during the conference, or watch afterwards on Treesearch’s YouTube channel without registering. 

Update 200506: For following the conference live, please register for the the webinar as we currently are currently experience technical problems with the live-streaming at YouTube.

Treesearch Industrial Postdoc Program

The Industrial Postdoc program is an initiative where the industrial partners in Treesearch identified research questions to be explored in postdoctoral projects. The program started in 2019 and consists of 13 postdoc projects at the universities in Treesearch. 

During this conference you get a chance to listen to 8 of the projects, presented by the postdoc and industrial supervisors.
