Welcome to the platform for active and intelligent packaging


Objective

Information exchange on active and intelligent packaging (AIP) is especially needed for SMEs who are not in the position to do this on their own. Effective partnership is needed to fasten their access to superior technology and reinforce their position in the European and global food market. Against this background, the proposed project will have the following innovation targets:
  • To enable SMEs to integrate AIP solutions into their products, adapted to respond to the consumer demands for a high diversity of fresh and nutritious convenience foods.
  • To provide a Collaboration Platform to organise networking between the involved research institutes, associations and SMEs, and to form a Knowledge and Communication Platform to supply knowledge, technologies, and expertise to all involved parties.



Approach

The project will cover the following work areas and yield the related outcomes:
  • to collect technical knowledge and available data on commercialised techniques of AIP for food applications,
  • to exploit and disseminate the potential of AIP materials by evaluating their functional properties/risks/processing techniques in combination with specific food applications,
  • to establish and document new methods for effective and comparable characterisation of AIP functionalities, submission of test methodologies to the standardisation committees,
  • to give up-to-date information on regulatory aspects,
  • to set up a group of key institutes and food and packaging specialists in Europe skilled in developing and testing of AIP as contact points.
