Oregon State University and the University of Oregon have joined forces to launch the National
Center for Advanced Wood Products Manufacturing and Design. Housed at OSU College of
Forestry, the Center brings together a one-of-a-kind collaboration between leading architecture,
wood science, and engineering programs to focus on the development of innovative wood products
and building components capable of being produced in Oregon. The applied research center will
actively partner with Oregon building design professionals and wood products manufacturers to
drive innovation and testing for engineered wood materials, allowing Oregon to compete in
emerging domestic and global markets.
