2. Circul-a-bility Conference

12–14 September 2022, Ljubljana (Slovenia) and online

 

 

Organized by:

COST Action 191249 Re-Thinking Packaging for Circular & Sustainable Food Supply Chains of the Future

Pulp and Paper Institute (local organizer)

Supported by:

 

RE-THINKING FOOD PACKAGING

Packaging protects the food throughout its life cycle, interacts with the consumer, and in addition to make our life more convenient, keeps the food safe, ensuring its quality, and optimal shelf life. Progress is urgently needed to improve food packaging sustainability and secure its circularity, while minimizing food waste.


A WHOLE SYSTEMS APPROACH

The conference will include research focused on sustainable food packaging solutions, under the CIRCUL-A-BILITY COST Action community (CA191249). As whole systems approach is needed, this conference will bring together scientists with different backgrounds to share research results, debate ideas and solutions and collaborate for a swift green transition to more sustainable packaging.


A MEETING PLACE

The Conference will serve as a meeting place for researchers, industry, associations, and policy makers facilitating the application of results throughout the value chain while enhancing knowledge transfer within different application areas.

  • The conference is  organized as part of the CIRCUL-A-BILITY research network,  an open global network of more than 200 research scientists from over 40 Countries
  • The Conference is targeted equally to scientists, students, and professionals from academia and industry that are interested to all topics related to sustainability of food packaging
  • The event will be carried out ONSITE in LJUBLJANA/SLOVENIA and ON LINE ( via Zoom conference system)
  • Conference Proceedings will be published as a dedicated Special Issue of the Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems

Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Food safety (FCM)
  • Active and Smart Packaging
  • Innovative Materials for Food Packaging
  • Food Waste reduction and valorization in packaging
  • Sustainability and circularity measurement
  • Recycling and end of life solutions
  • Consumer behavior and circular consumption models
  • Food packaging traceability and supply chain management
