Understanding wood science: Gottstein Trust course
The Gottstein Trust’s Wood Science Course only happens once every two years and will next take place from Sunday June 21 to Friday June 26. The course was rescheduled from previously advertised February dates due to hail damage caused to buildings at the ANU in Canberra. The structure of the course will not change – just the dates.
Forest products are now being recognised as more efficient users of energy than many other materials. This five day course looks into wood anatomy and properties, and the techniques of processing wood products for local and global markets. The course is geared to the interests of managers, consultants, executives and service providers within the forest and wood products supply chain and of particular relevance to those who have recently joined the industry.
Specifically the course looks at:
• Providing an understanding of wood and the properties which affect processing and end-use
• Providing insights into the potential for development of new products
• Providing an appreciation of contemporary issues including supply and demand trends in the forest products industries.
The first two days will be at Albury with a great program of activities before travelling by luxury coach to Canberra for the second leg of the course. This will take place at the Fenner School of Environment and Society, Australian National University.
