The Ecole Supérieure du Bois (ESB) in Nantes, France, is launching a post-master degree entitled “Bioresource composites: innovation and ecodesign’ in 2010.

DrMark Irle, research director for ESB and regular columnist for WBPI, says the programme is designed for engineers and high-level professionals who wish to enhance their capabilities in innovation and ecodesign within the domain of wood and polymer based composites, that is wood based panels and wood plastic composites.

The course is a partnership between ESB (Academy of Wood Sciences and Technology) and ISPA (Academy of Plastics Processing).

The one-year curse will begin in September 2010 and will cost €9,000 per student.
