The 2nd Mass Timber Research Needs Assessment Workshop was held on November 13-14, 2018 at the US Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory (FPL). The purpose of the workshop was to convene a group of experts on cross laminated timber and mass timber to develop a list of prioritized research needs for the North American mass timber industry. The workshop had over 100 attendees including design professionals, academics, industry leaders, and government employees. The attendees generated a list of over 117 research needs. After the workshop, the list of 117 research needs was prioritized through the use of an online survey. This paper presents highlights of the top research needs generated at the 2nd Mass Timber Research Needs Assessment Meeting.
