The upcoming Symposium focuses on fibre-based packaging materials, since various, mostly legal initiatives from countries all over Europe are forcing distributors of packaging to create more sustainable products.

This is a big challenge for the paper industry and one has to cope with the optimization of barrier performance, dealing with new feedstock, migration, influence in recycling, different behavior in processing and the integration of smart functions. Please share your experience with successful collaboration, new products, solved problems in your field or a development story.
