Abstract

The scientific and technological results of the research carried out under Research Area V (Pulp, Paper and Board) of the Commission's first research and development programme on Wood as a Renewable Raw Material were presented at this seminar by the persons who were directly responsible for the research. The programme was carried out under the responsibility of the Directorate General for Science, Research and Development. It covered all aspects of the wood chain, ran for four years, and terminated on 31 December 1985. Twenty research contracts were placed in this particular section of the programme. The work was carried out by specialized industries, universities and research organizations in Community countries. In addition, Sweden participated in the research as an equal partner as the result of a Cooperation Agreement signed in June 1983 between the European Communities and the Kingdom of Sweden. In this context mention should also be made of an agreement concluded in February 1985 between the European Communities and the Swiss Confederation for coordination between the Swiss national research programme on wood and the EC programme Wood as a Renewable Raw Material. The objective of the European Seminar on Pulp, Paper and Board was twofold: item - to disseminate the results of the EC R&D programme to European industry, and item - to provide a forum for a free exchange of views between those who were actively involved in the research and the representatives of industry.par Such a discussion was especially valuable in the light of the new Research Action Programme (1986-1989) on Wood, including Cork, as a Renewable Raw Material, which was being implemented by the Commission at the time of the seminar, as it highlighted the areas in which further research remained to be carried out. These Proceedings contain the texts of all the presentations made at the European Seminar on Pulp, Paper and Board.
