The 22nd Gottstein Wood Science Course will be held at the CSIRO Clayton, Victoria from February 15 to 19 next year with the assistance of CSIRO and the University of Melbourne.

The course is aimed at delegates from across Australia who may be working in the wood products industry but may have no formal learning of the industry.

The course covers both hardwood and softwood anatomy, processing and benefits of the timber industry overall.

The Gottstein Wood Science Course has run every two years since its inception in 1978 and continues to attract delegates from different areas of the industry with different levels of understanding and background of the industry.
