Aid Scheme for Growth and Development from Wood

The Aid Scheme for Growth and Development from Wood under the Wood Building Programme aims to promote the use of wood in construction by granting support for various kinds of research and development projects. The measures under the aid scheme include the allocation of funding to selected themes within the sector, activating different stakeholders and encouraging new players. The projects to be supported should have a broad impact and boost growth in the sector. The maximum amount of funding to be granted in total is EUR 5 million.


Information on the Growth and Development from Wood projects and the final reports are available at the project portal maintained by the Federation of Finnish Woodworking Industries (in Finnish). 

Fifth application round under the aid scheme: Many possibilities of wood

In spring 2021 the aid scheme provided the opportunity to target development projects to all of its themes: digitalisation and technology in building with wood, low-carbon building, user-driven solutions, circular economy and industrial networks.
