New WoodChat episode launched

Friday 31 Aug 2018

 
Launched this week, the latest episode in the Forest and Wood Products Australia (FWPA) series of WoodChat podcasts explores the new research centre aiming to put Australia at the forefront of global best practice.

In the latest episode, the hosts Sam and Victoria meet with distinguished international academic and leading industry figure, Professor Jeff Morrell of Oregon State University. They discuss, amongst other things, his recent appointment as Director of Australia’s National Centre for Timber Durability and Design Life, and what the Centre will achieve for the industry both in Australia and internationally.

Episode 3 of WoodChat comes hot on the heels of topics such as biophilic design and how wood in the workplace can increase worker satisfaction and productivity, and a revolutionary new tool which predicts how climate will impact growing conditions at specific sites around Australia in the future.

And make sure you stay tuned! Future topics will explore modern technologies such as drones in forest management and the environmental benefits of timber as a construction material. The WoodChat series represents FWPA’s commitment to exploring new ways of communicating industry news and innovations. Each episode in the series includes in-depth conversations with experts on recent discoveries and innovations.
