Sector innovation plans
It was agreed in the Dutch Framework Agreement for Packaging 2013-2022 that sector organizations would formulate innovation plans with the highest attainable objectives for sustainable packaging. The highest attainable objectives must be achieved in 2018. In 2017 sector organizations will commence establishing their highest attainable objectives for 2018 - 2022. The KIDV is designated to evaluate the innovation plans. A scientific committee has been appointed for this purpose, with four scientists from various Dutch universities, each with their own field of expertise to assure quality. The KIDV devises the sector innovation plans based on the scientific committee’s opinion, after which they are presented to the State Secretary. The Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment (IenM) can use the plans with the highest attainable objectives in policy development.
