Service Innovations For Packaging Sector 2017
The project comprises two work packages aiming at developing new research services for packaging and product development.
The Living Lab unites the services of three marketing research companies into a single service concept. The new concept has been named Sense ’N’ Insight, the aim is to generate a innovative service for product and package testing.
The ROI Toolkit is to be utilized in evaluating packaging return on investment (ROI). In the second working package a digital tool be developed to guide companies changing focus from minimizing packaging costs to increasing proﬁts i.e. maximizing the demand for the product and brand communication.
The Valuepack project was composed of ﬁve work modules providing a holistic perspective into value formation by applying theory and research methods from various ﬁelds of sciences. The aggregate knowledge of the multidisciplinary research team, in combination with international cooperation constituted a streamlined project with almost twenty case studies.
The aim of project was to:
- increase and spread LOHAS knowledge and understanding in package value networks,
- study how LOHAS-related meanings (health, well-being, ecology, ethical and social responsibility) are communicated and perceived in packaging, and
- develop and test consumer research methods for studying multisensory package concepts.
