TAMK Develops a Unique Learning Environment for Timber Procurement

Science journalist Kalle Heiska has published a report about the new up-to-date learning environment for training in timber procurement under development by TAMK University of Applied Sciences and Tampere University of Technology.

TAMK is developing a unique learning environment which teaches students about the entire complex chain in timber procurement. This is to help forestry students and professionals to achieve a better conception of the significant factors contributing to the chain of timber procurement. The learning environment briefs its user on the various perspectives of forestry actors – the seller, the forestry white-collar worker, the subcontractor and the wood processor.
