Deep Tech-packaging partnerships for food innovation and security

The project FoodPackLab 2 aims at fostering cross-border and cross-sectorial collaboration of clusters and business networks in the strategic field of smart food chain. It connects clusters from four different sectors (agriculture, food processing, packaging and deep tech) and 5 European countries (Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy and Spain) in order to support European SMEs to access new global value chains and ensure their position as global leaders of innovation in targeted industries.

It uses one of the most disruptive new technologies (deep tech) to combat challenges in one of the most strategic sectors (food industry). It is not only about the new-tech for European economic development. It is about securing the future with sustainable and responsible industries.
