3rd FIBRE Network Conference Starts next Monday!


The upcoming third edition of the FIBRE (Forest Innovation by Research and Education) Network conference, May 11-13, 2015, will be held at École Polytechnique de Montréal, Quebec. PAPTAC, in collaboration with Paper Advance and Le Maître papetier, is proud to bring you the official coverage of the third FIBRE Network Conference.

We are so proud to be here, with École Polytechnique’s support, and share our rich research program with you. There’s something for everybody: learning, networking and even, for students, preparing business and commercialization plans. I hear that our dragons are as merciless as those on the infamous Dragons’ Den TV show! While the students prepare their pitches, researchers will be wracking their brains to determine the path forward for new projects, and identify the best that academia has to offer to industry.
- Theo van de Ven, Scientific Director, FIBRE
