Karin Sandberg works at RISE Research institutes of Sweden and is the head of the section Wood building Technology that work with research and development of wood structures and Buildings.
Karin have a past as researcher within wood, first at Trätek and then at SP Wood.
During my research, I examined the properties of wood and its influences on durability using CT-scanner and image processing to measure water absorption in wood. Today my special interests areas are outdoor constructions and wooden facades.
I’m going to talk about development of new innovative products for renovation of facade that have been developed together with industry in Sweden, Norway and Finland.
