The meeting served as a fruitful occasion for partners to share updates, exchange ideas and pave the way towards the next phase of the project. More specifically, ViSS partners had the opportunity to look more in detail at the technical specifications required for the ViSS value chain. They also discussed processes to optimize PHBV production, considering the industrial upscaling necessary to facilitate decision-making.

The Consortium had also the chance to go through the principles and categories of the Safe and Sustainable by Design (SSbD) Framework, as well as the development of the ViSS ICT platform.

The second day began with two interesting workshops, one, aimed to introduce the methodology towards the identification of the Key Exploitable Results library and, the second one, covered data and ethics requirements. All partners were then interviewed in videos to raise awareness of their contribution throughout the new ViSS value chain.

In line with the project’s mission, these two-day meetings revamped the partners’ full dedication to make the necessary technical steps ahead and towards the establishment of the new value chain of the ViSS project.


ViSS is not the only project at the forefront of promoting new sustainable consumption and production patterns. The project, committed to creating biodegradable and recyclable plastic packaging, is teaming up with other European projects such as K-CCRI, Woodcircles, Reconstruct, Agro2Circular, Plastice, Walnut, B-ferst, and CULTIVATE, to launch the #CircularWasteEU social media campaign. This initiative aims at promoting responsible production and consumption, thus amplifying efforts to raise awareness on this crucial issue.

The campaign is set on March 30th, aligning with the International Day of Zero Waste 2024, a United Nations (UN) initiative started in 2022 to promote effective waste management practices and reduce waste generation. The initiative emphasises the impact of simple actions within everyone’s reach to increase a zero-waste society.

With this purpose, ViSS will publish a series of short videos where each European partner will explain how circularity potentially guarantees a zero-waste world in daily work. Trying to reach as wide an audience as possible, the social campaign seeks to involve all parts of society requiring full collaboration between governments, communities, and industries.
