VIROSPACK BETS FOR ACADEMIC TRAINING IN PACKAGING

ENCOURAGING CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION OF YOUNG TALENTS

The National Packaging Design and Sustainability Awards seek to promote innovation, design and sustainability in the packaging sector, as well as strength the link between the business world and the university. Two long-standing goals included in Virospack’s CSR plan. Committed to creativity and innovation, trusting on academic training and motivating young talents, Virospack increases every year its resources to the University.

The company already led its own awards last year according to a collaboration agreement signed with ELISAVA, University School of Engineering and Design of Barcelona. This year, and coinciding with the 10th edition of the National Awards, Virospack launches its challenge to a greater number of students distributed by more than 25 universities throughout the national territory.

A challenge that is borne fruit of the collaboration agreement signed with the Packaging Cluster of Valencia, in collaboration in turn with the Packaging Cluster of Catalonia and with the Graphispack Association -member of IEEE, Spanish Institute of Packaging-.

The collaboration consists of the creation by students of a novel proposal in dropper that can be built on the concepts of Design, Technology and / or Interaction with the Consumer & Innovation and Sustainability. Students must present a dropper container that maintaining the excellent functionality and the high level finishes for which Virospack is renowned within the cosmetic market, brings innovation to the sector . Other advanced attributes such as extra functions to its precise dosage, and/or a refilling package for a reusable dropper, among others, will be highly valued.

The Tenth edition of the National Packaging Design and Sustainability Awards allows students from different academic disciplines to apply their knowledge to solve real challenges. In this case, a challenge raised by Virospack according to the needs of the market and perfectly explained in the briefing published in the legal bases of the contest on the web page http://clusterenvase.com/premios-nacionales/.

The finalists and winners of these Awards will automatically become candidates in the Liderpack Awards. They are the most important awards that are granted in Spain in the field of packaging and POS.

In addition, another important novelty of this edition in which VIROSPACK is involved, is that a selection of the winning works of the Liderpack prizes, will compete representing Spain in the world contest “WorldStar Awards” organized by the WPO -World Packaging Organization, the Most important international awards related to packaging.

An opportunity without doubt for students and new graduates, who will be able to participate in the most prestigious national and international awards in the packaging sector. An opportunity in which Virospack contributes with its collaboration in academic training, and promoting and rewarding talent, innovation and creativity in cosmetic packaging.

VIROSPACK, PASSION FOR PACKAGING.
