Instituto Superior
de Agronomía (ISA)

ForTec investigation group has a multidisciplinary approach, linking materials properties to processing, and biological basis of formation to production, combining fundamental with applied research aiming at improving quality or yields, and bridging into innovation. Concepts of forest-to-consumer, chain sustainability and biorefineries are pillars of ForTec strategy, under a societal and economic globalized framework.

The strategic goal is to address the sustainable use of natural resources of forest origin, anticipating threats at supply level and addressing the broad diversity of natural resources, with a smart specialization in wood and non-wood engineered products and composites, as well as fully exploring the energy, chemical and structural content and diversity of resources.


Innovative Eco-Construction System Based on Interlocking Modular Insulation Wood & Cork-Based Panels

Design, validation and implementation of an ecological construction system based on natural biological materials to improve energy efficiency in public buildings, contributing to the mitigation of climate change.
Modular interconnected wood and cork insulating panel systems can replace traditional systems, generating technical, environnemental and socio-economic benefits for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, through the implementation of networks and joint experimentation.

The IMIP project is co-financed by the Interreg Sudoe program and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
