2015 National Technical Forums

The AIP and APPMA are currently planning the details of the 2015 National Technical Forums, which will be held over 24 to 26 March 2015. After a number of successful National Technical Forums run concurrently with the last AUSPACK exhibitions, the 2015 National Technical Forums will deliver a three-day educational program that will cover a broad range of topics relating to the theme of Open Innovation and Collaboration.

The forums will be divided into breakout sessions to ensure that a diverse range of issues and topics are covered over the three days. The AIP and APPMA are seeking a broad range of speakers from all areas of the packaging, processing, materials and components sectors to ensure the forums offer something for everyone.

2015 APPMA Scholarship

In conjunction with the AIP, the APPMA is offering a packaging engineer the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Packaging Technology to the value of $9000. The diploma is an internationally-recognised qualification for those wishing to pursue a career in the packaging industry, or for those already in the industry who wish to extend their knowledge and expertise.

The diploma is a Level 5 qualification that prepares students to take responsibility for packaging operations at any level through the supply chain and can also lead to higher-level study.

Submissions are due by 30 January 2015. To access a submission form, visit www.appma.com.au or email appma@appma.com.au.
