  • The Packaging Cluster presented the new services that it will offer to its associates in the virtual conference on January 15

After reviewing and analyzing the results of the past 2020, during the webinar of January 15, the cluster wanted to photograph the year 2021 with everything that we will offer to our associates soon. The result? We have already scheduled 50 interactive and participatory sessions, 14 collaborative and innovative projects underway, we have established a direct network with start-ups and we will launch the Packaging Observatory on January 26.

The Packaging Observatory will be established as a space where you can find periodic reports on trends, studies and exclusive information on the development of the market, find out what is happening, how and where. We will work on it together with the external consultancy Connociam, who will help us take the first step to establish this packaging radar, tailored to the members. 

The new services involve more work and, therefore, a team with more professionals. Artur Costa, President of the Packaging Cluster stated that: “in order to provide good service and correctly attend the entire activities plan with more than 50 seminars, we have expanded our structure with Carlos Jiménez and Pol Marin. On the other hand, I encourage you to participate in the training plan. I will take a course too, as I consider that it is very necessary and interesting to continue training ourselves to improve the competitiveness of companies”.
