From 22nd to 24th June 2015 BERTIM project had its kick-off meeting in Bilbao at project coordinator TECNALIA facilities. The project team met face-to-face and discussed on the project ambition and objectives and its coordinated implementation, with tasks and assignments for the following months.
Strong scientific, technical, technological and manufacturing skills are combined in the well-balanced BERTIM team of 12 partners. They belong to six countries from the European Union (i.e. Denmark, France, Germany, Poland, Spain and Sweden). It is formed by all main type of institutions needed to cover the overall value chain of the project. The consortium consists of RTOs (research technology organizations), SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) and large companies with a great experience. The organization of the consortium in made by geo-clusters. In order to assure replicability the project results the consortium is organized in around three timber manufacturers, one in the South of Europe (Spain) one in Central Europe (France) and the third one in the North of Europe (Sweden). Each industry will be supported by a research centre experts in construction in wood but with their own distinguishing capabilities. Some partners provide a transversal knowledge for the geo-cluster partners (as they are experts i.a. in mass manufacturing, in construction in wood, in dissemination, providing business models and exploitation and software development).

It is official! Let us kindly inform you that BERTIM Final Conference will be held in the framework of 9th International Wood Construction Forum (Forum Bois Construction), to be organized in Epinal/Nancy, France, between 3rd and 5th of April 2019. FBC is one of the most important European congresses of wood and wood construction sector.
BERTIM Consortium members will use the opportunity to present their achievements in the series of numerous presentations, uploaded to daily programmes of different thematic workshops.
We recommend to SAVE THE DATE and follow the BERTIM website to register to the project final conference. The registration is going to be available here:
It is also confirmed that BERTIM outcomes and findings will be displayed on a SPECIAL BOOTH dedicated to project's promotion in the exposition hall of the congress. More details will be available soon! Check us out to make sure you won't miss anything!
