The MoU sets broad aims, including mutual recognition as research collaborators and service suppliers. Both institutions agreed to share facilities and resources for research purposes, conduct joint research in designated fields of interest, and organise meaningful events such as seminars and conferences.

Anticipated outcomes encompass joint research projects with industrial applications, knowledge upgradation, and the enhancement of research capabilities. The collaboration aims to develop standardised platforms to meet future research requirements, fostering joint patents and publications resulting from collaborative efforts.

This transformative alliance solidifies the commitment of GLS Group and IIP to lead the way in packaging innovation and sustainability. Both organisations eagerly anticipate a fruitful collaboration that will not only shape the future of packaging research but also inspire industry-wide advancements.

Headquartered in Gurgaon, GLS Group has an operational presence in over 27 countries and employs more than 2000 people. And though it operates across vast geographies, its vision to create sustainable and innovative solutions on every front is what binds it as one GLS group.
