InnovAcciones 360° was a project of open innovation and citizen participation in the food packaging sector. It aimed to turn citizens into drivers or players in RDI, with the ultimate goal of fostering innovation through a circular flow of information, from the end user of food packaging to scientists and SMEs. The novel aspect of this project was that ideas would come from citizens and, after a process of research and development led by scientists and companies, would return to citizens in the form of new and enhanced products.
The project was divided into several networking public meetings stakeholders from different areas. 1st Networking – Trends and Experiences: Researchers, businesses and consumers met together to discuss food packaging requirements and develop ideas for innovations to meet societal needs. 2nd Networking – Specificity towards innovation: Scientists and companies met to study the feasibility of potential R&D projects raised by citizens in the first round.
