AXIA at the Polymers 2024 MDPI Conference in Athens

AXIA Innovation, a partner of the BIO-SUSHY project and leader of the work package on measures to maximize impact through communication, dissemination, and exploitation, recently participated in the Polymers 2024 conference held from May 28-31, 2024, in Athens, Greece. This conference was an excellent platform to present the project’s innovative solutions in sustainable polymer applications.

At the event, AXIA Innovation played a strategic role as our CEO, Dr. Ioanna Deligkiozi, chaired the conference. AXIA also showcased a poster titled “Utilizing Bio-Based Coatings To Address PFAS Concerns – A Strategic Analysis Using PESTLE and SWOT Tools.” This poster provided a comprehensive analysis of bio-based coatings using PESTLE (Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal, and Environmental) and SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) tools. The research highlighted strategic insights into the adoption and benefits of bio-based alternatives to traditional PFAS-containing materials, emphasizing the project’s advancements in addressing environmental concerns.

The Polymers 2024 conference, attended by over 300 participants, focused on polymer science and technology, making it a perfect venue for the BIO-SUSHY project. The project’s objectives align with the conference’s theme, emphasizing the development of sustainable, bio-based polymer solutions. Attendees had the opportunity to engage with the project’s findings and discuss their broader implications for the polymer industry.
