Meetingplaces

Our next full day cluster workshop is held on Tuesday May 7 at SINTEF, Oslo Science Park

SINTEF will present their research capacities related to packaging and distribution. The founders of Zoopit AS will present their technology for a faster and more secure distribution of groceries and vegetables. The founder of the startup B’ZEOS AS has a plan to replace single use plastic with a natural polymer based on marine plants. ACT-Group will offer insight into tracking and logging temperature in the packaging chain.

Our meetings are open to all member companies, partners and affiliates. Please contact our project manager jorgen(at)emballasjeforeningen.no for more details in English.

We schedule two main seminars annually and four full day workshops open to all members and partners. In addition, we have autonomous innovation groups assembling at intervals according to their own schedules. The innovation groups work with specific projects within packaging, raw materials, technology and food waste, to mention some areas, all based on our main topic: making packaging and distribution more sustainable.
