TOPWOOD is a four-year staff exchange program between four organizations (participants) of four countries, three from the European Union (BOKU Austria, INRA France and MADERA PLUS Spain) and one third-country (INTA Argentina). The objectives of TOPWOOD project are to develop and test innovative tools and methods of measurement and analysis of wood basic properties. Basic wood properties are important because they are involved in forest tree response to environmental variation and control all components of wood quality. The LIA FORESTIA is the main participant of the TOPWOOD PROJECT. This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 645654.
