Within the international consortium of Biocompack-CE we intend to improve sustainable linkages among actors of the innovation systems for strengthening regional innovation capacity in central Europe in the field of packaging.

We mainly focus on the fact, that the appearance of microplastics in recycled paper secondary materials and compost is becoming a major concern. There is a high potential for mobilizing synergies between business and research in the area of combined paper-bioplastics packaging design, production and recycling in Central Europe. Linkages are not sufficiently established due to lack of awareness among paper packaging producers on new bioplastics materials, a separated focus on plastics and paper in clusters and branch organizations, the lack of a common innovation strategy within a clear European and national legal and economic context and the lack of dedicated tools to support SME’s in introducing new paper-plastics packaging solutions.

Proposals should be submitted to Mr. Zsolt Keresztúri (Omnipack First Hungarian Packaging Technology Cluster- Cluster manager) via email: or national contact points in partner countries: A.Kržan (SLO), C.Wojcik (PL), G.Baničević (CRO), D.Bakoš (SK), G.Elegir (IT), Z.Kereszturi (H) – for full contacts see BIOCOMPACK-CE project webpage.

The pilot actions will take place between June-September 2019.
