Numerous activities and R&D groups that work with biobased fibers have emerged all over the Nordic and Baltic region. With this recent and shared focus on intelligent resource use, waste re-use and reduction, as well as research in developing of new products from sustainable materials, there is a need and opportunity to establish a network and closer collaborations. The activities in focus specifically concern sustainable utilization of plant fibers from the forest and agricultural industries. The network offers a platform for exchanging ideas, infrastructure and for extended collaboration on larger projects.
The network met for a joint seminar on October 22. 2015 and workshop on October 23. 2015 where ties were established between different sectors and across borders.
The next meeting in the network will be on November 28.-29. 2016. For more information visit: www.fiberties.dk
