As the only public engineering school in France to prepare executive personnel, engineers, researchers etc. and promote research studies and technology transfer for the wood and natural fibres industries, the ENSTIB is the logical partner for foreign institutions willing to develop exchanges and partnerships in these fields with and within France.
Dozens of conventions with foreign universities and institutions (Europe, Africa, Canada, Chile, ...) have been signed and are active.
Participation in the European programs : TEMPUS, PHARE, Leonardo da Vinci, COFURN, SOCRATES-ERASMUS... ENSTIB is a founding member of INNOVAWOOD.
On February 6th 2009, I was officially awarded the Thèse de la Région Lorraine First Prize at the Moselle area local council for my thesis on “linear wood welding: study and understanding of the physico-chemical modifications and development of an innovative assembly technology”. I would really like to thank all those who have contributed significantly to this work and without whom I would never have gone so far in the carrying out of this project.
