Welcome to the Division of Wood Science and Engineering in Skellefteå, the Swedish centre for wood science. Research in wood physics, chemistry, modeling and processes is carried with the vision of solving problematics of the industry, from the forest to the finished product.

Everyone has probably worked with wood at some point, says Lars Hansson and refers to the fact that he already came into contact with his research subject as a child. At that time he had no research ambitions. Today he is researching wood with the help of tomography at Luleå University of Technology in Skellefteå.
