Active packaging influences internal environment of packaging to proactively improve the quality of the packaged good, whereas intelligent packaging senses changes and communicates that to the consumer. The main objective of the COST Action is to develop a knowledge-based network on sustainable, active and intelligent fibre-based packaging. The goal is to define innovative solutions and identify opportunities and obstacles in market introduction for future active and intelligent packaging in the area of paper and board based products. At this two day meeting the members of COST Action will have possibility to present their institute/company and ongoing research or a specific project relevant to Action’s topic. Members will decide in which Working Group will be most active and within each WG they will make the action plan for the first year. Also from the COST Science Officer and COST Administrative Officer the update will be given.
