BioMatPack Winter Training School “Use of nanopolysaccharides in packaging” - 11-13 December 2013

The Training School is organized within the framework of COST Action FP1003 BioMatPack.
It brings together partners - universities, research centers and industrial - from several European countries.

Its main objective is to improve knowledge on materials from biomass and to identify new renewable packaging solutions from these bio-based materials.


Registration before Nov. 11, 2013


Registration fee
40€ per trainers and trainees for lunches and coffee breaks.
This will be reimbursed by COST for any selected trainees and trainers.

The COST Action will also reimburse the travel and accommodations (meal, hotel) following their rules if you are selected as a COST  trainees (about 2 per country).The selection will be done following the inscription date (the sooner the better). Naturally more participants from a country can participate but do not get reimbursement.
