A close knit group of municipal authorities pledging against plastic waste and implementing project results and recommendations towards bio-based plastics.
In order to facilitate the uptake of project results from civil society and public authorities, we have established the "Network of Historic Cities against Plastic Waste" ( HISCAP). The network congregates historical cities from Europe, whose aged infrastructure make them especially vulnerable to the many problems caused by plastic pollution. The network fosters the sharing of cooperative knowledge of Best Practices and Lessons Learned among the participating cities and will address many problems plastics pose to their environment and infrastructure, with the specific purpose of pursuing the use of bio-based plastic alternatives.
An active community of researchers, executives, enthusiasts and activists gathered to discuss and spread cutting-edge knowledge in the field of bio-based plastics.
BIO-PLASTICS EUROPE aims to provide strategic networking and research, coordinating knowledge across Europe, catalysing new ideas and rapid solutions across the research and innovation landscape. IN this context, we have set up the "European Bioplastics Research Network" congregating representatives from universities, research institutions and enterprises interested in research bio-based and biodegradable plastics research. This is a technical network, encompassing for example engineers, biologists, planners and economists, which focuses on the technicalities of bio-based plastics development, applications and uses. Regular meetings and relationships with other organisations in this field will help to reach synergies and avoid duplications.
