Scientists against plastic

Transregional technological platform for transfer of advanced bio-polymers from lab to market.

BioApp is collaborative project between Slovene and Italian organisations aiming to establish sustainable flow of information among stakeholders included in the production of products made out of innovative biopolymer material with high added value and a corresponding development of services focused on the needs of the food, cosmetics and health-related industries in the cross-border area between Italy and Slovenia, in order to increase the level of competitiveness and stimulate economic growth for new employment opportunities.
