After short introductory, open-ended presentations from the keynote speakers, the challenges and opportunities presented for smart polymers in packaging and labelling will be discussed. Working groups will then convene to develop a shortlist of possible projects and identify:

  • What are the key technical deliverables?
  • What are the key methodologies?
  • What is the best source of funding?
  • What is the timetable for assembling the proposal and launching?
  • What is the potential market value?

Liam Sutton, Polymer Centre Manager and Director of FaraPack Polymers Ltd, will present one of the plenary talks. He will describe Smart polymers for future packaging applications.
