Events for 2015 (Year 2)

Technical Workshop, Tallinn, 4-5 March 2015

The workshop, entitled "Performance Testing and Testing Methodologies of Non-wood Biobased Materials" will focus on the methods used to determine in-service performance and moisture interaction, particularly through the use of test buildings: it is hoped that all national participants will contribute at least a poster of test buildings and specific methods used in determining the performance of bio-based building materials. In addition, preference will be given to presentations on the use and performance of non-wood products. The meeting will also include an introduction to COST Action FP1404 "Fire safe use of bio-based building products".
