CreatorInternational Research Group on Wood Protection
DescriptionThe International Research Group on Wood Protection, commonly known as the IRG, is a structured group of like-minded scientists and technologists focused on generating knowledge of the science of wood deterioration, and novel solutions to provide fit-for-purpose sustainably and environmentally responsible products for the protection of wood-based materials. The primary function of the IRG is to provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas and information in an informal atmosphere, unencumbered by refereeing of papers or other pre-conditions. The primary vehicle is the annual meeting usually held in May of each year with global locations chosen as providing optimal opportunities for interactions between attendees and in settings that are both interesting and economically viable for our diverse attendance from around the world. Each year 100 to 190 papers are presented and published, with all papers being available free to members and sponsors in electronic format through the IRG searchable database. Non-members of the IRG are able to search the online database and purchase any paper for download through the website. Membership and sponsorship is open to all interested persons and organizations. The IRG Secretariat is based in Stockholm, Sweden.
