Bormioli Pharma is part of the VIT international consortium for the study of new advanced sustainable materials

Bormioli Pharma has joined the international VIT consortium, coordinated by the University of Parma in collaboration with universities of excellence such as the University of Vienna and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) of Boston, for the development of latest-generation recyclable polymers, with potential applications in pharmaceutical packaging.

The project, funded by the Horizon 2020 European program on scientific excellence, deals with vitrimers: a new generation of advanced materials, with customized optical and electrical properties, which are fully preserved including in the recycling phase.

The success of VIT will be made possible by a multidisciplinary network of companies and academic research groups from three continents, which within four years will lead to the secondment of 97 doctoral and postdoc students in Europe and worldwide. Bormioli Pharma will collaborate with the University of Vienna, where a company employee will have the opportunity to take part directly in the research.

Thanks to these initiatives, we continue to support scientific research and innovation, through cross-sectoral collaborations, to rapidly evolve in an increasingly dynamic and complex global scenario.
