I am looking to add people to my network who are interested in so called ‘smart’ labels, indicator labels and functional labelling and packaging. This does not refer to RFID which is already well covered , but innovative coatings and chemistries that either change their environment or indicate that an event has taken place.
This is a major research area of The Mercian Labels Group and I wish to talk to technology providers with IP, researchers in academia or the commercial sector and prospective users of such technologies.
I am particularly interested to hear about potential users for such innovative labels, and suggestions for problems to tackle. If you are interested in these areas, please connect to me on linked in or drop an email to email@example.com
If there is enough interest, I will setup a linkedin group for further discussions, so please let me know if you would join such a group. Hopefully we will see some new collaborative partnerships originate from this activity.
