IHD - a strong partner for research and development.
A warm welcome to the Institut für Holztechnologie Dresden gemeinnützige GmbH (IHD). As a private state-of-the-art research facility that operates worldwide, we support the wood industry and associated sectors in their drive for innovation with industry-oriented and application-focused R&D activities.
Dear customers and partners, the coronavirus pandemic has changed our daily life in the last months. Despite the existing restrictions, we are maintaining operations in IHD and EPH and are there for you. Our top priority is the health and protection of our employees and business partners. We have therefore introduced numerous protective measures to minimise the risk of infection and prevent the spread of the virus. We have limited visits and business trips, and appointments are largely made by telephone and video conferencing. In order to ensure the greatest possible safety for our employees, we ask you to coordinate visits in advance. If you have typical symptoms of illness such as cough, rhinitis, fever, loss of taste or have had direct contact with a confirmed Covid-19 case in recent weeks, we ask for your understanding that we cannot grant you access. All visitors to the IHD and EPH are requested to register at the reception desk and to disinfect themselves on entering the building. The contact distance of 1.50 m must be maintained. If this distance cannot be maintained, a mouth-nose cover should be worn. We ask you to act responsibly and to observe general rules of hygiene (e.g. avoiding handshakes, washing your hands more frequently, coughing and sneezing). Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Stay healthy!
