International co-operation in wood preservation research
1979 - IRG/WP 3145
If one searched the literature, one could find many examples of international co-operation in the field of research in wood preservation. For example, individual workers in different countries in Europe have got together and made replicate tests with both fungi and insects on various preservatives of common interest and their results have been published. Much co-operation has not had its results published. Over the years, for example, at the old Forest Products Research Laboratory, overseas countries have sent both their own timbers and their own students to study these where all the facilities have been available, and this sort of exercise has gone on in many lands. There have been exchange visits of research workers from country to country, but these are all examples of individual items of co-operation. In this talk, however, we will have to confine our discussion to organized international co-operation. I will give some remarks about the largest organization in this field, viz. the International Research Group on Wood Preservation (IRG) at the end.

Knowledge exchange and transfer from academia to industry in the field of wood protection research – Activities of the IRG-WP Communications Committee
2019 - IRG/WP 19-50354
The International Research Group on Wood Protection (IRG) was founded in 1969 as a structured group of like-minded scientists and technologists focused on generating knowledge of the science of wood deterioration, and novel solutions to provide sustainably and environmentally responsible products for the protection of wood-based materials. The primary function of the IRG is to provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas and information in an informal atmosphere, unencumbered by refereeing of papers or other pre-conditions. While the primary vehicle is the annual meeting usually held in the second quarter of each year with global locations chosen as providing optimal opportunities for interactions between attendees and in settings that are both interesting and economically viable for our diverse attendance from around the world, the changing nature of the inputs into wood protection research over the past five decades, as well as the ever shifting environmental, global and economic influences have led to a desire to provide additional communications vehicles for the IRG members and sponsors, as well as to provide relevant information to the global audience with an interest in wood products protection and the associated research and technologies. This paper addresses the various ways that the IRG Communications Committee has been developing to provide diverse and on-going communications throughout each year.
