Advanced quality prediction tool for knowledge-driven packaging design and manufacturing in European SMEs

Advanced quality prediction tool for knowledge-driven packaging design and manufacturing in European SMEs

Objective

This proposal aims at improving the international competitiveness of European corrugated board industries, which are mainly SMEs and of related sectors by an integrated, transnational research approach. Research will be carried out by RTD performers in order to expand the knowledge base and improve the overall competitiveness of participating SMEs. It shall enable SMEs to increase their added-value in producing corrugated board, being one of the most valuable packaging materials, from alternative resources with high proportion of recycled fibers. For the European corrugated board industry the variability in raw materials with increasing percentages of recycled fibers is a very common technical problem.

Overall scientific and technical objectives: To create a database of information on raw materials (grade papers and corrugated board) available for packaging companies throughout Europe
