FiberTies - 1st Fiber Symposium Oct. 2015

The Network met on a 2 day symposium and workshop on the 22.-23. oct. 2015. The organizing commitee thank all the speakers and participants for joining the event.
The activities in focus specifically concern sustainable utilization of plant fibers from the forest and agricultural industries.

Numerous companies, R&D groups and private initiatives working with biobased fibers have emerged all over the Nordic and Baltic region. With the current  focus on intelligent resource and waste use, re-use and reduction, as well as research in development of new products from sustainable materials, there is a need and opportunity to establish a network with closer collaborations.

This network offers a platform for exchanging ideas, infrastructure and for extended collaboration on larger projects

The first meeting in FiberTies was a two-day joint symposium and workshop on October 22nd& 23rd, 2015.

The following topics were covered:
