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.-23.. 2015 and again on November 28.-29. 2016 where ties were established between different sectors and across borders.
The next meeting in the network will in November 2017. For more information visit: www.fiberties.dk
