Over the years, concerns have grown over the impact of plastics used as packaging materials on the environment. A recent focus has been on the problem of plastic fragments of less than 1 mm in size floating in rivers and oceans, harming fish, seashells, seabirds, and humans. Corporations and research institutes specialized in package materials and packaging are conducting R&D to address such social problems by using various approaches, e.g. promoting the 3R principle - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - and introducing biodegradable plastics.
Returning to the basic purpose of “maintaining the value and status of goods”, experts have started to discuss how improving on existing technologies. However, it is not enough and the consideration should be given to a paradigm shift approach. The approach will change the conventions of packaging, as well as modes of storage, protection, information labeling, and logistics.
In this request, proposals are globally sought from potential startups with innovative technology and business schemes that are not based on the conventional idea of packaging and can promote the establishment of an environmentally friendly society and even improve human lifestyles in collaboration with the major sponsoring company with such resources as broad channels and high-quality production technology.
The maturity level, the idea or the technology does not matter.
Besides the points above, we also consider if it matches the sponsor`s corporate strategy and timeline.
