BioBuild Challenge

A notice for the BioBuild Challenge came across my desk. Thought I’d forward it along.

From FPInnovations,

The BioBuild challenge is an online collaborative event that will take place over a 12 week period. Participants with varied backgrounds such as; wood science, engineering, design and chemistry are invited to work together to explore the use of novel wood-based bio-materials to produce next generation multi-functional building panels.

This challenge will run from February 25th until June 18th, 2013. The submission deadline is May 17th.

If you have an interest in building products, bio-materials or design, your input would be valued in this challenge. Students, academics and practitioners are all welcome. You can participate a little or a lot, either way you are sure to learn something new, stretch your creativity and make connections. In addition, there is 5000$ CDN worth of prize money for the best concepts.

For more information and to register visit, or contact Barbara Bell by email or 604 876 1169.
