Working together with Mondi


Now that the FibreNet PhD students have been recruited, we are eager to meet up and work together over the next three years.

This multidisciplinary network is working towards a common goal: “to bridge the knowledge-gap between the properties of fibres and fibre-based products in order to enable product tailoring, products with new functionalities and brand-new fibre products.”

As a global packaging and paper group active in R&D, we collaborate on a daily basis with partners such as students, research institutes and other companies and like to share our knowledge.

We are thrilled to see the diversity of skills and backgrounds among the FibreNet PhD fellows and corporate partners.

The future is already knocking on our door and complexity is increasing. An applied understanding of industrial challenges is therefore crucial to developing innovative, sustainable solutions in this dynamic global market environment.

We are looking forward meeting all project participants and invite all FibreNet PhD students to contact us by email and connect with us on LinkedIn.

We can’t wait to get started!

Your Mondi partners,
