BIOCOPAC at the EU Open Doors Day



To celebrate Europe Day, the EU institutions opened their doors to the public in early May at local EU offices in Europe. As a sample of EU-funded research projects, BIOCOPAC results were demonstrated at the project stand in the Berlaymont building (Brussels) the 4th of May 2013.

The idea was to showcase a successful example of EU funded research as BIOCOPAC.

- Projects’ results were demonstrated at the stand with possibility for the visitors to touch, feel, and experiment with some demonstration items as: tomato skins, cutin samples, Biocopac varnish, Biocopac lacquered samples and food cans.

- The benefits of the project for the citizens was easy to understand and people showed great interest to the idea of the project and to the possibility of using a natural lacquer.
