The SBTCP project currently has three partnering universities from Finland, Austria and Germany.
The project partners are:
- Karelia University of Applied Sciences, Joensuu, Finland
- Salzburg University of Applied Sciences, Kuchl, Austria
- Jade University of Applied Sciences, Oldenburg, Germany
Karelia University of Applied Sciences has been an active player in the field of wood technology and wood construction. Wood construction became a key area of development already two decades ago, and in 2013 it was chosen as a strategic focus area in the strategy of Karelia UAS. Education and research have been systematically developed, and successful results have been achieved. Karelia UAS’s research areas are concentrated on Sustainability, Competitiveness of Wood Construction, Carbon Footprint analysis using LCA, etc.
In its 6 departments Salzburg UAS offers 18 bachelor’s and 12 master’s courses. At the department Green Engineering and Circular Design on campus Kuchl the focus of research and teaching is on the topics Forest Products Technology & Timber Constructions, Design & Product Management and Smart Building.

The Institute of Database-Oriented Design (IDoK) at the Jade University of Applied Science is dedicated to building information modeling (BIM). The development of processes and tools for the cooperative processing of buildings using digital methods is the central focus of research. Due to past successful projects and initiatives, the Institute has just been honored by the Lower Saxony Minister of Economics as a “Digital Center of Lower Saxony”. The research area of Jade UAS in SBTCP is developing sustainable information flows and processes with the support of the method BIM
