Increase the speed of innovation with the latest research in packaging – Read the program here
New research and development projects are continuously launched and others are finalised at our universities and research institutions. You might not be aware of them but some of them have a potential to change the way we see packaging.
This work is very often unknown to the industry as the knowledge stays within the academic world. Packbridge wants to change this by providing a platform that links academia to the industry. Read more about Packbridge.
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.
This year the conference will focus on the latest research on smart and intelligent packaging, food safety and food waste, nanotechnology implications for packaging, bio-economy, and the latest research in bioplastics. As always sustainability and circular economy are crucial and will be discussed during the conference.
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 2017 at Studio in Malmö on May 23rd.
Some inspiration from last year’s Packbridge Research Forum
Packbridge is an international packaging cluster established in 2010. We are a neutral and non-profit network uniting all stakeholders in and around the entire packaging industry, i.e. producers, customers, suppliers, researchers and innovators. We believe in sustainability and cooperation. We believe that the key to success lies in sharing knowledge.
Moreover, we believe that in order to create innovations one must think differently, dare to go beyond existing boarders, challenge the reality, meet new people and open up to new ideas. The best way to facilitate creativity is to bring people with different skills together.
