The Partnership Research Program on Nanotechnologies for the Forest Sector for the Creation of High Technology Products

In partnership with the the Fonds québécois de la recherche sur la nature et les technologies (FQRNT), ArboraNano was pleased to launch The Partnership Research Program on Nanotechnologies for the Forest Sector for the Creation of High Technology Products.

The Program aimed to interest Quebec researchers working in various disciplines to respond to the needs of the partners and propose innovative research that would offer interesting avenues related to the application of nanotechnology to the pulp, paper and wood transformation sectors.

The research needs as defined by the Program were as follows:

Wood processing sector

Pulp and paper sector

Research projects that addressed some of the above needs were selected from a fall 2009 Call for Proposals.  Please click here for the list of grant recipients.

With an overall budget of $965,000, the selected researchers carried out efforts until 2013.
