Accelerating wood construction across Nordics and Russia
This project has been halted based on the Nordic Council of Ministers' decision to discontinue collaboration with Russia and Belarus, announced on the 4th of May.
The project aims at supporting sustainable and innovative production and use of wood-based building materials across Northwest Russia and the Nordics.
Using wood in construction provides multiple benefits to nature and economies. It is by far the most effective way to cut emissions and capture carbon. It also promotes a transition towards green economies, boosts business exchange opportunities and adds value locally.
This project focuses on influencing skills development, facilitating business relations and catalysing processes through the exchange of knowledge, technology and practices across universities, businesses and authorities. Activities will be held in Arkhangelsk, Karelia, Murmansk, St Petersburg and the Nordics from December 2021 until December 2022. The project is funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
