María Portela, a forestry engineer and researcher at the Lugo campus, is a member of the Plataforma de Enxeñaría da Madeira Estrutural (Pemade). This body has just published a guide to the supply and characterisation of structural wood.
-In Lugo and throughout Galicia there is an abundance of wood. Is added value given to it?
-It is generated. We have been working for years on projects with companies in the sector. In knowledge transfer we have reached the company: the last push is missing, but I think we are on the right track. The important thing is not that the projects stay here but that they reach the company. In fact, we are working with a company from Betanzos, which, like others, has become involved in the project.
