National Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Technology (INIA)

The National Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Technology (INIA) is an autonomous Public Research Organisation situated in Madrid (Spain). It has a team of nine hundred people, of whom about six hundred are directly involved in research activities. Its priority objectives are to satisfy the new research demands on agricultural, livestock and forestry production, mitigate the effects of global change and contribute to food safety.

INIA executes its research activities through different specialized Centers and Departments. The Forest Research Centre (CIFOR) is one of them which includes the Department of Forest Products, responsible for the generation of scientific and technological knowledge on key forest products and raw materials: wood, cork, pulp and paper but also on related sectors such as construction in timber, cork industry, paper mills, biorefineries or graphic arts.

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).
