Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The InFutUReWood project aimed to answer the question:“How should we build today to be able to circulate tomorrow?” It started in March 2019 and ended March 2022, covering both the design of new buildings, and the reuse of timber from buildings already at the end of their life. At that time, the subject was a rather novel research area for timber buildings, but this period of three years saw many changes. Increasing concern for climate change could have been expected, but shortages of building materials caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and political events encouraged many to take an interest in the reuse and circularity of wood products.
InFutUReWood was a European project within ERA-Net cofounded with ForestValue and funding agencies from each of the seven participating countries Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. This summary report compiles the work and results from the project divided into work packages. The compilation of the main results in this report was made by the WP-leaders and the project leads from each country.
