We train the participants from different background in creative thinking, innovation and entrepreneurship, with the final objective of translating their findings into real-world business solutions in sustainable food packaging. Successful participation will strengthen students’ ability to organize cross-functional teams and effectively communicate with industry, municipalities and across different disciplines. The training will be delivered by a mix of academic partners, but most importantly world renown experts and industry leaders in Corporate social responsibility. The trainees will spend the last week in the bootcamp identifying the gaps and provide business focused solutions on how to advance the packaging sustainability agenda.
