BIOCOMPACK-CE has been implemented between 2017 and 2020. In Central Europe there is a high potential for mobilizing synergies between business and research in the area of combined paper-bioplastics packaging and through the project, the partners provided to stronger linkages between R&D institutions and companies. The cross-sectoral approach has ensured the involvement of clusters, branch organizations and policy makers and all the stakeholders gave an important contribution for the success of Biocompack-CE: the project was active in all participating countries and, even if activities were mainly focused on partners’ locations, coverage of it was guaranteed nationwide. To sustain R&D-business linkages we established a Transnational Biocomposite Packaging Centre, a virtual platform linked to regional innovation.
Project activities involved a high level of cooperation with various stakeholders and had a very practical character and goals: to inform, train, support practical change in behaviour, market and industry. Although partners developed a business support system in direct contact with companies and other stakeholders. The experience was related to real market and policy conditions, a significant number of people were exposed to the topics of multi-material products and sustainable solutions and a number of stakeholders were able to start implementing changes. In most cases, this meant an assessment of potential and a tailor-made review of their particular situation, but in a number of cases, this resulted in implemented changes. To continue following the project activities and to keep in touch with partners and stakeholders from all over Europe, visit www.paperbiopack.eu.
Biocompack-CE was just the beginning. The main result of the project is an online platform, a well-rounded, one-stop support service for all your needs in the field of innovative and sustainable paper-bioplastics packaging solutions!
