The iVTH

The iVTH was founded in 1946 as "Verein für Technische Holzfragen" on the initiative of Dr. Wilhelm Klauditz, the former director of the correspondent institute, subsequent the Fraunhofer-Institut für Holzforschung.
The iVTH is an association of companies and personalities which promotes research and development in the field of wood and other renewable raw materials.

Our missions are:

  • Evaluation and support of research and development works
  • Assignment of research missions with actual objectives
  • Implementation of research results
  • Organising scientific events
  • Award of the Wilhelm-Klauditz-Prize for Wood Research and Environmental Protection

The iVTH provides advice for its members and informs them regularly and free of charge about actual research results of the Fraunhofer-Institut für Holzforschung, Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institut, and other research bodies. Short reports from current research projects are for our members exclusive.
