4th CIRCUL-A-BILITY CONFERENCE            

Re-thinking Packaging for Circular & Sustainable
Food Supply Chains of the Future
11.-13. September 2024, Aarhus, Denmark

­RE-THINKING FOOD PACKAGING
Packaging protects the food throughout its life cycle, interacts with the consumer, and in addition to make our life more convenient, keeps the food safe, ensuring its quality, and optimal shelf life. Progress is urgently needed to improve food packaging sustainability and secure its circularity, while minimizing food waste.


A WHOLE SYSTEMS APPROACH
The conference will include research focused on sustainable food packaging solutions, under the CIRCUL-A-BILITY COST Action community (CA191249). As whole systems approach is needed, this conference will bring together scientists with different backgrounds to share research results, debate ideas and solutions and collaborate for a swift green transition to more sustainable packaging.


A MEETING PLACE
The Conference will serve as a meeting place for researchers, industry, associations, and policy makers facilitating the application of results throughout the value chain while enhancing knowledge transfer within different application areas. 
 

  • The conference is  organized as part of the CIRCUL-A-BILITY research network,  an open global network of more than 200 research scientists from over 40 Countries
  • The Conference is targeted equally to scientists, students, and professionals from academia and industry that are interested to all topics related to sustainability of food packaging
