The International Association of Packaging Research Institutes (IAPRI) has chosen ITENE as the organiser of this international scientific event.
Valencia to bring together the world’s leading researchers and experts in the packaging sector.
The research centre ITENE has been chosen by the International Association of Packaging Research Institutes (IAPRI) to host the IAPRI’s World Packaging Conference in June 2024. The 24th edition of the scientific event is expected to be attended by more than 300 researchers and experts from the packaging sector with the aim of presenting and sharing the latest developments in the field of packaging.
The news has been communicated today through the IAPRI website by Edward A. Church, Secretary General of the association, after the celebration of the 23rd edition of this conference that took place from 12 to 16 June in Bangkok (Thailand).
ITENE will bring to this event 30 years of experience, since that same month of 2024 the research centre will celebrate three decades of activity dedicated to generate scientific-technological knowledge to transfer it to companies through R&D&I projects, consultancy, testing and training services.
In addition, ITENE already organised in 2015, at its headquarters in the Technology Park of Paterna (Valencia), the 27th IAPRI Packaging Symposium, a scientific congress only for members of this association, which gathered 120 researchers from 27 countries, who submitted 135 presentations.
In the case of the World Packaging Conference that ITENE will host in 2024, the event will be open to all scientists and attendees who want to get updated about all the news in this field. In this sense, the CEO and Managing Director of ITENE, Javier Zabaleta, has expressed that “the IAPRI World Packaging Conference will make Valencia the showcase for Spanish and international companies to know in situ the main advances of the R&D in packaging at the global level”.
The proposal sent by ITENE to IAPRI highlights the existing knowledge hub in Valencia, which hosts several centres and institutions dedicated to research, several organisations supporting technology transfer and scientific and technological dissemination, as well as a Technology Park made up of about 450 organisations and companies, where ITENE has its headquarters.
IAPRI is the leading global body for packaging research and is responsible for promoting the exchange of initiatives between experts from 85 research centres and packaging companies from 31 countries that make up the association.
