  Director's Message

Wood is Good. This goodness in wood emanates from its inherent qualities-natural, diverse, renewable and biodegradable. More so, it locks carbon, It demands very less energy for its manipulation and is amenable for industrialization. All these make wood the best among the materials available in the present world. The institute of wood science & technology (IWST) proudly strives to promote this wonderful material – ‘wood’.

t was the vision of his Highness, the maharaja of Mysore , Sri Krishnaraj Wodeyar  IV, who was referred to as a ‘Raja Rishi’- a Saint and a king by mahatma Gandhi, that led to the birth of Forest Research Laboratory (FRL) in 1938, which ,five decades later, took its  present name and form .sprawling over 25 acres, IWST is among the greenest spaces of Bangalore. The Institute is dedicated to bring about scientific advancements and technological enhancements in the field of forestry and wood sciences. It is recognized to be a Centre of Excellence for Sandalwood Research and Wood Science. I welcome you to the website of the Institute, which has been recently celebrated its Platinum Jubilee.
