Advising

Pack4Food provides advice on the following subjects:

  • Packaging
  • Packaging under modified atmosphere
  • Active and intelligent packaging
  • Biobased and recycled packaging materials
  • Heat resistance of the packaging material
  • Migration

Furthermore, Pack4Food supports with applications for research projects, both company-specific and collective ones. Pack4Food can also search for possible grant opportunities for you.

Thanks to the important networking possibilities of Pack4Food, we can also refer you to the most appropriate partner(s) for specific questions in case this should be necessary.

Various knowledge centres within Pack4Food have also been recognized as service providers within the SME portfolio. This means that for technological tailor made advice regarding innovation questions, up to 75% of the cost can be subsidised by the SMEs. Technological exploration mostly requires a study activity of 2 to about 15 working days.

The results of such exploration projects consist of thorough technological advice. This allows the SMEs to gain more insight into the innovation aspects and facilitates the decision making on whether to start the next step to innovation as well as the way in which this should happen.

Such exploration projects can be a first step towards a deeper feasibility study or an innovation project (with eventual financial support from VLAIO).
