She was one of the pioneering researchers to focus on wearable technologies and built a reputation for research activity in this arena. She founded and led the Human Wellbeing Group at the MIT Media Lab where her vision was to employ human centred design principles to address the biggest challenges facing the healthcare industry in delivering population health outcomes.

Representatives from our Technology Gateways, including the managers and their research staff, will also be available for informal meetings on the day. If you wish to avail of this option, please contact Grainne Foley (gfoley@technologygateway.ie) or Megan.Reid@Enterprise-Ireland.com.

Sustainable Packaging Seminar

Date: 11th April 2019

Time: 9 am to 1 pm

Location: Carlton Hotel near Dublin Airport

Sustainable Packaging Seminar for companies in the print & packaging and food & beverage sectors

And event for companies in the print & packaging and food & beverage sectors

On the 16th January 2018, the European Commission (EC) published a European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy.  Its objective is for plastics and products containing plastics to be designed to allow for greater durability, reuse and high-quality recycling. It will require all Member States to reuse and recycle 50% of all plastic packaging waste by 2025 and 55% by 2030. This poses a significant challenge but also an opportunity for Irish companies in the print & packaging and food & beverage sectors.

The objective of the Sustainable Packaging Seminar on 11th April 2019 is to highlight to companies the ongoing trends in the development of the next generation of food & beverage packaging products which are reusable, recyclable or compostable. The event will also provide information on Enterprise Ireland funding supports for market diversification, increased competitiveness and innovation. The EI Brexit Support team will also be there to present how Enterprise Ireland can support your company to deal with the challenges of Brexit.

The event will provide an opportunity to network with third level research groups and companies across the supply chain to discuss the design and production of sustainable packaging solutions that will support the circular economy.
