Ghent University launches new programme in 'Sustainable food packaging' in Campus Kortrijk

The new advanced master’s programme Sustainable Food Packaging at Ghent University Campus Kortrijk prepares students to become experts in sustainable food packaging systems.

Sustainability is becoming increasingly important when it comes to food packaging. Both the food and packaging sector have a specific need for experts who know how to pack food in a sustainable way. The programme addresses this need and tries to stimulate a switch towards 100% reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable packaging.

The one year master's programme is intended for people who are already working in the food or packaging sector, but also for recently graduated Belgian and international students who want to specialise in sustainable food packaging.

More information: and Applications are open until 1 April for non-EEA citizens, and until 1 June for EEA citizens.
