The Action aims at exploiting the potentiality of polymer nanotechnology in the area of food packaging treating in a complete way the demanding needs of the users, such as health, environment, taste, cost and the specific requirements of the food industry. The envisaged direction is to look at the complete life cycle of the PNFP by the combined efforts of leading research and industrial groups. The Action will identify the barriers (in research and technology, safety, standardisation, trained workforce and technology transfer) that prevent a complete successful development of PNFP and will indicate the strategies to proceed further. Already 54 partners including 13 companies and coming from 23 countries have shown interest in the Action, which will be organized in 4 Working Groups: 


  • WG1-Development of new safe PNFP;
  • WG2 Development of new processing technologies including modelling and simulation;
  • WG3-Development of new strategies to identify any critical interaction of PNFP with food;
  • WG4-Ethics, Standardization, Science-society dialogue.
