By eeNews Europe

The collaborative exhibition ‘Paper Evolutions: Exploring digital and physical paper futures’ showcases cutting-edge print and paper innovations taken from European companies and R&D centres. The exhibition aims to showcase some of the most interesting print, paper and fibre innovations taken from across Europe, and explore a range of diverse applications these materials could have.

The 16 exhibits include packaging that incorporates sensors and links with your mobile, posters that are capable of detecting human touch and printed batteries.

But beyond the technology, the exhibition seeks to explore how fibres from a range of materials could offer socially conscious solutions – such as fibres made from recycled cacao beans and smart packaging that informs allergy sufferers of potentially harmful ingredients.

Paper Evolutions’ is a collaborative exhibition that brings together work from members of the COST Action FP1104, which focuses on innovating print media and packaging and aPAPER Breakthroughs’ publication.

This travelling exhibition explores innovative paper and cardboard concepts and their potential for society, beyond the discussion digital versus paper alone. The exhibitors come from Finland, the Czech Republic, Germany, the UK, France, Sweden, the Netherlands and Belgium.

The exhibition is being held in conjunction with the IARIGAI conference
