IAPRI"s New Mission and Vision Statements
The IAPRI Board of Directors announces the creation of a new Mission and Vision Statements for the association. Over the past two months and a couple of meetings, the statement has been completed along with some modification to our Aims. This all can be found on the “About Us” page on the IAPRI website.

The International Association of Packaging Research Institutes supports and advances packaging research and education by facilitating knowledge exchange and collaboration.
IAPRI is a key contributor to the worldwide development of responsible packaging through networking between its academic and industrial members.

Aims: How do we reach our vision 
  • Establish and advance professional and personal relations between associates of packaging research and educational institutions around the world.
  • Enable peer review with respect to methodology, analysis, and potential outcomes at early stages of research projects.
  • Facilitate exchange of anticipated research projects with respect to instrumentation, measurement, analytical techniques, advice on equipment and apparatus, avoiding duplication of work by means of the knowledge exchange between researchers’ participation in IAPRI Communities of Practice and conferences. 
  • Promote the importance of packaging science and technology at the University level to target groups, including international organizations, government bodies, and foundations.
 These aims are supported and enabled by:
  • IAPRI World and Member Conferences, symposia, and other educational events.
  • Our Communities of Practice activities.
  • Collaboration with publishers to facilitate the recognition and publishing of the scientific and scholarly work of our members.
