Guarantee the
growth of skills in
the area of Natural
Fibers.

WANFR offers a wide range of research, learning, education and content in various formats. This program goal is to guarantee the growth of skills and knowledge in the area of Natural Fibers among professionals and scholars, promoting the commitment to qualified knowledge.

The World Association of Natural Fibers Research aims to assist in the development of new products and processes that can help create greener and more sustainable technologies. The association has a team of enthusiastic and qualified researchers that endorses young researchers in different fields of knowledge to contribute to the new developments in natural fibers, creating a global networking team.
