Get insights and meet international experts within key areas driving the circular economy. 

We have this year invited experts from the US, Australia, Germany, Norway and of course from Sweden. The focus will be the latest development and research within Circular economy.

We are addressing the topic from three areas, Sustainable Materials, Recycling and Food Waste.

What is new this year is that we will not only have an opportunity to listen to leading researchers talking about the future opportunities for the industry. We will also have a chance to discuss the matters. In the afternoon we have organised workshops for all participants to engage in

As a participant, you will get access to a variety of interesting packaging related research from leading universities, both from the Nordics and from abroad.

Packbridge Research Forum provides a unique update on where packaging research is and what we can expect from the future.

We look forward to meeting you on April 26th at Palaestra in Lund, Sweden

Some inspiration from last year’s Packbridge Research Forum

Since 2012 we have annually staged an inspirational conference where universities and research organisations have presented their latest packaging related research. We introduce inspiring speakers representing European universities and research organisations to the audience. Usually we have around 150 people from the industry are present to take part of the presentations and workshops.

If you missed the conference last year, you can get access to all the presentations on video when you register for Packbridge Research Forum 2018 in Lund on April 26st.
