The conference is the most prestigious international event in timber engineering, engineered wood products and design of timber structures, which is held biennially in different parts of the world and attracts researchers, engineers and architects, code consultants and building officials, contractors and project managers and suppliers from all continents.
During WCTE 2023 Oslo the traditional focus on timber engineering and material science will be complemented by architecture and future global challenges. In 2023 Oslo will demonstrate new timber technology and cutting-edge timber architecture in order to secure liveable societies in the future.
Oslo welcomes you
Oslo proudly welcomes you to a city on the rise. We proudly welcome you to a metropolis so compact that world-class eateries and great attractions are always just right around the corner. And we proudly welcome you to a capital world-famous for peace and where your money goes much further than you'd think. Oslo is the European Green Capital in 2019.

Timber for a Liveable Future
WCTE 2023 Oslo will addresses future global challenges. In 2023 we will demonstrate new timber technology and cutting-edge architecture in order to secure liveable societies in the future.
Norway has innovative, green ambitions for the future, based on clean nature, historical traditions, new architectural ideas, strong economy and a modern and innovative building industry.
Due to targeted and coordinated work throughout the value chain in the forest and the construction industries, modern Norwegian timber architecture has helped move national and international borders. Norwegian construction and architectural environments are considered to be world-class.
Norway has long been world leader in the construction of large timber structures, such as bridges, long-span buildings and high-rise buildings.
