22 years characterised by curiosity, creativity and passion for new things, process-oriented thinking and independent action have always led the Kompetenzzentrum Holz GmbH – Wood K plus to innovative solutions in the fields of wood chemistry, composites, solid wood and surfaces in all its projects.
This success and 22 years of existence were now duly celebrated on 22 September 2022 at its site in Tulln (A).
Prior to the celebration, a top-class scientific symposium with lectures on “Perspectives for a sustainable bioeconomy” took place. In the evening, Managing Director Boris Hultsch welcomed around 200 guests, including representatives of partner companies, universities, public authorities, owners and funding bodies as well as employees. In the course of the talks, the visitors not only learned about the highlights and important milestones of the last 22 years, but were also given a glimpse into the future of the competence center and wood as a material in general, in addition to musical accompaniment.
Wood K plus recently won the COMET tender and was awarded a research programme worth €23 million (more details: https://www.wood-kplus.at/en/aktuelles/comet-ausschreibung—wood-k-plus-setzt-sich-durch-n155).
The celebration ended with a festive buffet. At the same time, sufficient attention was paid to the idea of networking.
