What is the Stiftung Holzwirtschaft?
In order to support students and scientists, the BDH founded the Stiftung Holzwirtschaft Hamburg in 2004. According to the statutes, the purpose of the foundation is “to promote science, research and teaching in the field of the timber industry at the University of Hamburg and cooperating public research institutions”. The latter can also be located abroad.
In concrete terms, this means, for example, that students of wood economics or bioresource use/wood science can receive scholarships for study visits to other universities or scientists can receive funding for research projects. Another example is the financial support of excursions. A foundation also enables all interested parties to actively promote academic education in the field of wood economics and bioresource use in Hamburg through donations or endowments.
