Open Innovation Ecosystem for Sustainable Nano-functionalized Flexible Surfaces
Today, a wide range of products, including packaging, consumer electronic devices and even car windows, use plastic and paper-based flexible materials and films based on nano-enabled functionalisation of the surfaces. The sector is facing a major challenge consisting of overcoming plastic waste pollution by following the European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy and adopting digitalisation and products ready to be integrated into smart frameworks. The EU-funded FlexFunction2Sustain project is the first European initiative aiming to support the industry with a sustainable open innovation ecosystem that will enhance innovation for nano-functionalised flexible plastic and paper surfaces and films. The services will be offered to EU SMEs through an independent single entry point legal institution.
