Launch of FoodPackLab 2!

FoodPackLab 2 is dedicated to: Innovation in Food Security and Internationalization Support for European SMEs in India & South Africa. The project will run from september 2020 to september 2022.

Another exciting journey has just started! This time focusing on #deeptech and #packaging for #foodsecurity and creating a bridge between #europe, #india and #southafrica.

The project FoodPackLab 2 aims at fostering cross-border and cross-sectorial collaboration of clusters and business networks in the strategic field of smart food chain. It connects clusters from four different sectors (agriculture, food processing, packaging and deep tech) and 5 European countries (Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy and Spain) in order to support European SMEs to access new global value chains and ensure their position as global leaders of innovation in targeted industries.

By fostering Deep Tech-packaging partnerships for food innovation and security, the project aims to link together all actors of the sector and to boost their development by highlighting complementarities between existing economic activities.

The FoodPackLab 2 framework for cross-border and cross-sectoral collaboration, initiated with FoodPackLab, will be further developed through the organisation of FPL 2 webinar series, fact-finding missions, internationalisation missions for European SMEs to India ans South Africa and follow up activities. It will result in new business projects between SMEs beneficiating from project´s activities, as well new collaborations between the Partnership and international actors.
The Partnership will also elaborate exit strategy to ensure the sustainability of project outcomes and continuity of work after the project’s end.

Consortium members are: Secpho, Packaging cluster, Systematic Paris-Region, Pack4food, Ifrac, Vitagora, Food & Bio Cluster.
