The Centre for Advanced Wood Processing (CAWP) is Canada’s national centre for education, training and technical assistance for the wood products manufacturing industry. CAWP offers a wide range of training courses, professional e-learning programs, in-plant training, product development, and manufacturing improvement services. They conduct and coordinate applied research and development, and support the award-winning B.Sc. in Wood Products Processing and its cooperative education program.
TWIG was started from the centre and over the last 10 years CAWP has been the support vehicle for the group. From hosting events, organizing guest speakers, providing product development services and advancing the network, they are the foundation of our organization.
Our next Seed Night takes us in person and online to CAWP where we will be doing a facility tour of the labs, machinery and technology they have in house. Jason Chui and his team will take us through the tour, with a few demonstrations planned to showcase how the lab and the machinery operates. For those in attendance you can get an idea of how CAWP can support you in advancing the development of your ideas.
We will be sending a reminder e-mail of the event closer to the date with more details about what’s happening on the tour schedule and other information about getting to UBC CAWP.
