FoxLab is a new scientific initiative jointly operated by the National Research 
Council of Italy (CNR) and the Center for Research and Innovation of E. Mach Foundation (CRI-FEM). 
It builds on a strategic convergence of several CNR institutes dealing with biometeorology, ecosystem science, forest genetics, tree pathology, soil ecology 
and wood science and operates via a number of externally funded projects 
augmented by seed funding and core funding primarily from FEM. 
The long-term mission of FoxLab is to integrate knowledge, infrastructures and expertise of the different institutions associated, in order to pave the way for the creation of a major forest and wood science organization with national and 
international perspectives. 
At present, FoxLab coordinates several projects which are contributing to 
achieving longer-term strategic objectives.


Blucomb is a spin-off company that engineers and produces a new generation of pyrolitic stoves.
