The Wood Industry Cluster (WIC) is a non-profit private organization founded in 1999 by woodworking companies, R&D institutions and Republic of Slovenia. WIC combines companies and institutions from Forestry, Wood processing, Furniture sector, energetic and chemical industry.
The mission of the Wood Industry Cluster is connecting companies and research institutions, aiming at improving the knowledge transfer into the companies, facilitating their participation in international development projects and implementing activities of common interest, resulting in knowledge-based competitivenes.
The Wood Industry Cluster has been operating together with the Association of the Wood and Furniture Industry at the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and Industry since 2007. The Association deals with the industry policy and coordinates its members’ interests with a wider environment. The Wood Industry Cluster, however, gives operational support to its members, helping them to achieve their goals, mostly by the implementation of R&D projects, internationalization and trainings.
