About COST Action FP1205

COST – European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research – is one of the longest-running European instruments supporting cooperation among scientists and researchers across Europe. COST is also the first and widest European intergovernmental network for coordination of nationally funded research activities.

Among the key objectives of COST FP1205 are:

  • Improving knowledge on the preparation of nanocellulose and regenerated cellulose from wood sources
  • Modifying the properties of cellulosic materials to provide greater performance and potential for commercial uptake
  • Optimisation of processing parameters for the scaling up of regenerated cellulosic fibre production
  • Understanding the performance of new materials
  • New products from regenerated cellulosic sources
