The first of four Hackathons, which will be major aspects of this year’s World Congress on Active & Intelligent Packaging, has been confirmed as looking at the consumer and regulatory acceptance of nano-technologies in packaging. It will be coordinated by AIPIA and the EU Horizon 2020 funded NanoPack project.

“Acceptance of nanotechnology” is a hugely topical subject. Nanotechnology offers real advantages but must gain more support and acceptance. The Hackathon will be a great opportunity to develop new ideas on improving consumer and regulatory acceptance of nanomaterials and working on implementing effective solutions.

The Hackathon is an invitation only event for specified delegates and takes place at the World Congress on November 2nd in Amsterdam.
