UPLIFT, upPE-T and PRESERVE to hold a joint online workshop on Standardisation in Plastics and Circular Economy

  • The session will count on the participation of three EU-funded initiatives working on bio-based packaging: UPLIFT, upPE-T, and PRESERVE.
  • These projects are all working to upcycle food and drinks packaging through different technologies such as biological depolymerisation, enzymatic technologies and enzymes compounding.

The three European projects working in the framework of standardization will organize an online workshop to be held on 27th April 2022 from 10:00 – 13:00 (CET). The aim of this event is to build a high-level meeting point for stakeholders across Europe to show how standardisation can support valorising research and innovation (R&I) results.

The workshop will be divided into three parts: during the first one, the workshop will count on different short talks from a representative of the Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA) among others to frame the standardization in Europe and how European R&I projects can use standardisation as a successful conduit to valorise their results.

The second part will present the CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreements (CWAs) as well as the challenges of standardization in circular economy, whilst an open discussion will be conducted in the final session regarding the importance of standardization in circular economy.
