Reflecting on the Milestones: The M54 General Assembly Meeting of the Build-in-Wood Project

Updated: 6 days ago

This March, the picturesque city of Bucharest played host to a pivotal moment in the journey of the Horizon 2020 project "Build-in-Wood". Over two insightful days from 13th to 14th March 2024, the M54 General Assembly meeting brought together the project's partners and stakeholders, marking a significant phase in our collective quest to revolutionize the construction industry with sustainable wood solutions.

The event was graciously hosted by the  Agenția Metropolitană Brașov | Brasov Metropolitan Agency and URBASOFIA, whose impeccable organization and warm hospitality laid the groundwork for productive discussions and meaningful exchanges. The meeting served not only as a platform for reviewing the progress achieved thus far but also as a crucible for crystallizing our strategy for the project's final six months.

Highlights and Project Updates

The Build-in-Wood project, funded under the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, has been a beacon of innovation and sustainability in construction. Focused on developing efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly wood-based materials and solutions, the project aims to make a significant impact on the construction sector by promoting the broader adoption of wood in urban environments.

During the meeting, various project updates were discussed that underscored the strides we have made in pushing the boundaries of wood construction technology. Notable advancements in material science, architectural design, and construction methodologies were shared, illustrating the project's commitment to innovation and its contribution to the green transition in the building sector.

Looking Ahead: The Road to Completion

As we look toward the final stretch of the Build-in-Wood project, the assembly meticulously outlined the roadmap for the remaining six months. Our collective focus is now on consolidating our research findings, finalizing our pilot projects, and disseminating our knowledge and innovations to stakeholders across the construction ecosystem. The goal is clear: to leave a lasting legacy that propels the use of sustainable wood materials to the forefront of global construction practices.

Gratitude and Anticipation

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the Metropolitan Agency of Brasov and URBASOFIA for their exceptional role in hosting the M54 General Assembly meeting. Their support was instrumental in the success of this gathering, embodying the collaborative spirit that has characterized the Build-in-Wood project from its inception.

Looking forward, we eagerly anticipate our final meeting in August, which will be hosted in Denmark by the Danish Technological Institute, our esteemed project coordinator. This concluding assembly will not only be a moment to celebrate our achievements but also an opportunity to reflect on the lessons learned and envision the path forward for sustainable construction technologies.

As we advance towards the culmination of the Build-in-Wood project, we remain committed to our vision of transforming the construction industry for a sustainable future. The journey has been challenging yet rewarding, and as we approach its conclusion, we are inspired by the progress we have made and the impact we are poised to achieve.
