FPInnovations hosts online learning course on tissue manufacturing

November 11, 2020  By FPInnovations

In light of COVID-19, FPInnovations moved its first tissue course online – and the company’s new approach to tissue learning proved to be a success.

This first interactive Tissue Course was organized by FPInnovations in collaboration with its partners (Cristini, Fabio-Perini, Kadant, Solenis, and Toscotec) and with contribution from UBC and Technidyne.

The course was held October 26-29 and attracted close to 150 people from over 30 organizations from all over the world. The event helped address the training needs of the industry and connected participants with industry-leading experts in tissue properties and tissue manufacturing.


The new digital and interactive format of the course included lectures, a tissue sample package sent to participants’ addresses, video demonstrations, Q&A sessions and quizzes. The course reflected strong involvement and received excellent feedback from attendees, who came from diverse roles and disciplines.

“My colleagues and I enjoyed the presentations and learning. Great job on everyone’s part and congratulation to FPInnovations’ team for the success in organizing this event,” says Shaune Hanley, product development manager, Resolute Forest Products.

Robert Marineau, general manager, Technidyne Inc., says, “For me personally, better understanding the process will help me in helping customers understand with the results obtained from the different lab and online testing equipment we supply.”

FPInnovations is planning on offering this type of online training course again. More details will be announced next year.
