Training Schools

Training School is one of the networking tools of COST Action. Training Schools aim to facilitate capacity building on a topic relevant to the theme of the Action through the delivery of intensive training on a new or emerging subject. They are typically considered to be for the benefit of Early Career Investigators and PhD students. COST supports the participation of both, trainers and trainees. In COST Action ActInPak four Training Schools are planned.


24-27 September 2018, Business Development for Active and Intelligent Packaging, Training School, Grenoble, France

We invite Early Career Investigators and PhD students to join the Training School on Business Development for Active and Intelligent Packaging.  During this Training School, the focus will be on the end of the Value Chain to end ActInPak’s joint search ‘how to fill the gap between science and industry’. The Trainees learn how to develop and advertise concepts; to better understand how to create a viable business case and what boundary conditions are important when creating innovations for the market.

Trainees will be asked to bring their own concept (product/material/idea) to the Training School. During registration, the Trainees are requested to submit the topic they want to focus on during the workshop. However, it is also possible to work with the ActInPak demonstrators (for more info, check our website).
