3SPack NSERC Industrial Research Chair started in spring 2010. Its mission is to develop innovative, multilayer packaging using materials and films whose functional properties help improve safety. Detecting pathogens, reducing the amount of materials used and using biodegradable materials are other key concerns. The Chair aims to develop flexible multilayer packaging with added value for the environment and society. It is jointly funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Council of Canada (NSERC) and Industrial partners.
The 21st IAPRI World Conference on Packaging will take place between 19-22 June in Zhuhai, China. It is hosted by Jinan University and Hunan University of Technology. For more information please click here
IAPRI is pleased to announce that PepsiCo is sponsoring the 2018-2019 IAPRI Student Exchange Scholarship.
PepsiCo had stated this in support of the Scholarship: 'We believe this scholarship will provide a deserving student the critical skills and research experience in the field of packaging, needed for a successful career in a packaging or a consumer products company.'
The scholarship is $7,000 and 6 months with the objective of graduate students travel to a member organisation to undertake research that will enhance their work. We have a number of members who are interested in hosting students and we will help applicants contact potential hosts.
