The task of Woodpolis is to promote corporate activities in the wood industry by developing innovations in intermediate processing in wood constructions together with enterprises and other partners.

The roots of Woodpolis lie in high-standard raw materials in Kainuu, developing enterprises and the long-standing development work by the city. The City of Kuhmo started goal-oriented development of the wood industry already in 1992 by establishing Kainuun Puualan Kehityskeskus (KPKK). The operation of KPKK ended in 2000, however, the idea of Woodpolis came up before that.

Woodpolis started operations in April 2006.
