The goal of this action is to bring together researchers and practitioners from different origins (academia, museum, handicraft and industry) and from diverse backgrounds (organology, wood sciences, conservation, mechanics and acoustics) to focus on wooden musical instruments and establishing new collaboration in order to increase their knowledge and to use the COST networking tools (STSM, focused meetings...).

This Action aims to combine forces and to foster research on wooden musical instruments in order to preserve and develop the dissemination of knowledge on musical instruments in Europe through inter disciplinary research. The proposed program involves curators and conservators on the one side, wood scientists, chemists and acousticians on the other side, and finally, researchers in organology and making of instruments.
As part of the CIMCIM (International Committee of Musical Instrument Museums and Collections) network, working with some members of the former WoodCultHer COST and with makers, the project will integrate study, conservation and preservation works on musical instruments in heritage, and will allow the different European teams working on wood to participate in research projects on musical instruments. The collaboration will help to develop cooperative programs on specific projects about the study and identification of artefacts and about the conservation of musical instruments.
22 European countries are part of this COST action with an international partner, the Tsukuba University from Japan.

The scientific areas are :
- Art and humanities sciences
- Mechanics and characterization of wood
- Acoustics and reconstruction of wooden musical instruments

The opening conference took place in February, 27-28th, 2014 in La Cité de la Musique, Paris, France.

The next meetings will be held in September, 8-12th, 2014, Montpellier, France : Cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary perspectives on wood selection and processing in musical instrument making (http://woodmusick.org/call-for-papers2, http://woodscicraft2014.lmgc.univ-montp2.fr/) and in October, 1-2nd, 2014, Cremona, Italy (associated with the Working Group Wood Sciences (GDR Sciences du bois 3544, http://www6.inra.fr/gdr-sciences-du-bois/Seminaires-colloques/WoodSciCraft-2014) : Multidisciplinary approach to wooden musical instruments identification (http://woodmusick.org/call-for-papers).
