The environmental trends and the growing need to develop models that allow the promotion of the circular economy show that it is fundamental to carry out actions that promote research and development.
It was in this context that Novo Verde - Packaging Entreprise Award was born, contemplating the dynamization of research and development actions with strategic interest for the packaging sector and for the country.
The first edition of the Novo Verde - Packaging Entreprise Award has closed and the winning entry was Packaging Matters from Feel Matter.
The 2020 edition is aimed at companies that manufacture packaging, with the objective of finding the best solutions that meet the circular economy aims. Registrations are open until December 15, 2020 and, once submitted, the companies in the competition will be able to submit their applications/projects until January 31, 2021.
With a global value of 25 000€, Novo Verde intends to boost the sector and promote competitiveness among companies. The Packaging Enterprise Award'20 has three levels of winners in which, in the first place, the total amount of 15 000€ will be attributed and in the second and third, the values of 6 000€ and 4 000€, respectively. The winning projects will be unveiled at the end of February 2021.
