26 - 28 April 2022
Gabriele Ehmcke, the scientific partner from the Johann Heinrich von Thünen Institute - Federal Research Institute for Rural Areas, Forestry and Fisheries, THUENEN, has visited Mendel University in Brno last week (26 – 28 April 2022) in the frame of the ASFORCLIC project activities. MENDELU's colleagues had the chance to exchange ideas about new research topics on wood modification, wood protection and material durability with Gabriele in dedicated meetings.ASFORCLIC offered the opportunity to the MENDELU master's students and academics to attend Gabi's lecture on the wood anatomy and properties of softwoods and hardwoods. She also demonstrated the MacroHOLZdata interactive application to identify common trade timbers & information on the wood properties, processing and utilisation. The lecture was realised in a hybrid way, allowing remote attendees to interact.
During her short stay, Gabi visited as well, the Josef Ressel Research Centre premises to see timber research in practice and discuss with her colleagues from the Department of Wood Science and Technology prospects and possibilities for future collaborations. We also showed Gabi the University Training Enterprise Masaryk Forest in Křtiny to allow her to learn more about our forestry activities.
