Wallenberg Wood Science Center

Sweden is today the world’s second largest exporter of paper, paper pulp and sawn wood. Through strong partnerships between researchers and industry, Sweden can take the lead for a climate-neutral future. What are the new innovations that will replace today’s materials and strengthen the bioeconomy?

The event is part of the unofficial programme of CAETS – the conference of the International Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences.

Take this opportunity to discover innovation with world-class potential to strengthen the bioeconomy and Sweden’s competitiveness together with speakers and researchers from leading actors in the field such as Stora Enso, Stockholm Envionmental Institute, Tetra Pak, Holmen, Cellink and more. We will also present the latest technology that is being used to manufacture products for the future. Ten or so exhibitors from universities and industry will show us how cellulose could potentially replace both plastic and aluminium, and its potential applications.

This event is part of the unofficial programme of CAETS – the conference of the International Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences, which gathers visitors from academies and the business community to discuss future global challenges how engineering sciences can be applied to address these challenges. Welcome to an exclusive gathering at a seminar and science fair at the Wallenberg Wood Science Center – a joint research centre for Sweden’s top universities for research on new bio-based materials from the forest.

The event is being arranged by IVA’s Business Executives Council and the Wallenberg Wood Science.
