Following the Start-Up Seminar in March there have been several scientific training courses and the workshop-seminar series 1 held by five of the Academic Partners, generating significant scientific output. It is our pleasure to be able to present some of those results within these pages.

The Innochain Journal #1 describes these events. It emphasises the workshop-seminars. The workshop-seminars are dual training events combining a hands-on workshop in which particular methods and tools are shared with a contextualising seminar with expert presentations. The workshop-seminars link to the 3 scientific work packages, Communicating Design (WP3), Simulation for Design (WP4) and Materialising Design (WP5), and hold a particular industry focus. The workshop-seminars were run respectively by CITA, ITKE and BSA.

The workshops series 1.0 examined the overarching topic: advanced timber construction. Undertaken in reverse order Workshop-Seminar 1.3 Materialising Design allowed ESRs to explore the planning, steering and undertaking of robotic fabrication of timber elements, Workshop-Seminar 1.2 Simulation for Design examined design integrated simulation and Workshop-Seminar 1.1 Communicating Design asked ESRs investigated the differences that advanced timber construction can make in architecture.
