Ecobiocap is a FP7-KBEE project that started in March 2011 (duration: 4 years). It is led by INRA (and scientifically managed by Montpellier IATE aboratory). It involves sixteen partners among which Cork University (Ireland), CSIC (Spain), Roma University La Sapienza (Italy), SIK (Sweden). The objective of EcoBioCAP is to “provide the EU food industry with customizable, ecoefficient, biodegradable packaging solutions with direct benefits both for the environment and EU consumers in terms of food quality and safety”. GraphIK is involved in this project via its common members with IATE team. The budget is managed by IATE team.
