Pathfinder Projects from Lund University
An Auditing Tool for Climate Effective Packaging
On the 5th of April 2017 Associate Professor Henrik Pålsson and Associate Professor Daniel Hellström of the Packaging Logistics department of Lund University was awarded a Pathfinder project from Climate-KIC. The project aims to strengthen and improve the quality of packaging audits for decreasing the total climate impact of packaging. This will benefit the environment considerably by reducing emissions throughout the packaging life cycle, while concurrently generating values in forward and reverse supply chains. This will be achieved by developing an online auditing tool that makes it easy for stakeholders to asses packaging performance and its climate impact so that packaging do much more good than potential harm. The project will be done in cooperation with IKEA.

On the 5th of April 2017 Researcher Angelica Lidén of the Division of Water Resources Engineering at Lund University was awarded a Pathfinder project from Climate-KIC. Floodview is an international R&D project creating a decision support system. The project will create a much needed app that can be used as a two-way communication tool between city officials and the general public. With this app, the Floodview system would be better adapted for crisis planning, and for green infrastructure planning.
