UAB Juodeliai has started a collaboration with Kaunas College of Forestry and Environmental Engineering

Understanding the importance of science, development and education in the life of a young person and seeking to develop a new generation of future employees, wood processing company UAB Juodeliai with the charity and support foundation of “Juodeliai & Co” is constantly looking for partners in the academic community.

At the beginning of this year the company signed a collaboration agreement with Kaunas College of Forestry and Environmental Engineering whereby the main goal is to encourage students to seek great academic results, participate in various practical activities and scientific research, create and implement joint research projects and programmes, organize scientific conferences and seminars.

In accordance with the agreement, during this year’s graduation ceremony on 28 June one of the students of the Wood Processing specialization whose final thesis had achieved the best result was awarded by UAB Juodeliai with a one – time scholarship. This year’s crop of students was the first to receive diplomas of this specialization because the programme had only been accredited three years ago.

The Wood Processing specialization of the Forestry study programme covers primary woodworking technologies, hydrothermal treatment and protection, engineered wood production technologies, furniture design and manufacture. This specialization is very important for the company as it is the closest one to the company’s business and develops innovative professionals in the field.
