Working hand in hand with industry partners and other organisations, we develop products and processes with economic, social and environmental benefits. We combine practice with the latest knowledge. By using this knowledge in our teaching for BFH degree programmes and continuing education courses, we ensure that knowledge is transferred into business.
Research + Development
Our research projects consistently focus on practical applications. Our researchers develop innovative solutions, working closely with our industry partners and other organisations. We collaborate with companies and specialists in the fields of forestry, wood finishing and utilisation – with the aim of ensuring that the raw material can be supplied and finished in line with needs.
The results of this collaboration include:
New forest management systems
Solutions to optimise buildings
Processes to preserve cultural heritage
We offer a wide range of consulting services relating to wood as a raw material, construction material and material. These services include:
Planning and expertise
Appraisals and analyses
Knowledge and technology transfer
Training + Continuing education
We incorporate the results of research conducted at the BFH centre in our bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes, as well as in continuing education courses at BFH. In this way, we ensure that teaching at BFH is always at the cutting edge.
