FoodPackLab project

FoodPackLab is funded by the European Union’s COSME Programme (2014-2020). It promotes the collaboration between food processing, packaging and photonics innovation clusters in the EU in order to identify and develop solutions to problems arising during the food processing and packaging stage that limit the food shelf life before being thrown out. FoodPackLab actions will result in the improvement of life quality and safety of EU citizens’ as well as affect positively the EU economy by saving its resources and stimulating the employment generation, aiming to gain a leading role in the food packaging and safety sector worldwide.


C-Voucher project

C-Voucher is the first project to support circular economy for SMEs at the European scale. It is funded under the Horizon 2020 Programme.

Its objective: Mobilize design and technological support for SMEs developing circular value chains.

Its ambition: Development of new economic, competitive, disruptive and innovative models in five areas : Agri-food, Health, Manufacturing, Maritime Industry and Textile.
