Membership

IAPRI membership is open to any institution, organization or company whether academic or commercial who is involved in packaging research, testing or education. Organizations not directly involved in research but support or are associated with packaging are also eligible for affiliate membership.

Currently there are over eighty members from 30 countries in membership. Over the past five years membership has grown by 3-5 members annually.

IAPRI offer members access to unique global network which brings together individuals from all over the world working in a range of packaging disciplines.
