Because we are convinced that the planet’s resources provide endless opportunities to better protect it and help build a sustainable future, ESB has built this vision into its DNA, to train future engineers and technicians in the field of wood and biosourced materials.
Their challenges? To know and master materials in order to promote their use, to design and produce with a circular economy approach, and to build the low-carbon housing of tomorrow.
