Blue Sky Young Researchers and Innovation Award

Tuesday 28 November 2017


Earlier this year, CEPI invited all early-stage researchers to apply for a chance to receive the Blue Sky Young Researchers Europe award! The contest shortlisted eight finalists, three of whom will receive the award and automatically be submitted to the ICFPA global competition. Join this session to hear exceptional presentations by eight talented young researchers and see which three will win the award. 

The future of the paper industry is bright - this session will convince you.
