Research collaboration Smedpack develops security solutions that prevent counterfeit drugs from entering the legal supply chain and thereby help to meet the EU directive. In the black market sales, counterfeit drugs are very high. The new packaging concepts will be easier for the consumer to distinguish true from false.

Smedpack Innventia

The partnership, led and coordinated by the Research Institute Innventia, involves more than 30 partners. The latter include both companies along the entire value chain from pharmaceutical manufacturers and logistics to pharmacies, as authorities, universities and NGOs. In the current, third stage of the project, emphasis is placed on internationalization issues why it is very important for the project to include parties that multinational pharmaceutical companies, Customs Department and the Police Authority.

Since its inception in 2012, Smedpack Pack looked at 40 different concepts. From these, three demonstrators by security solutions developed in collaboration with designers and manufacturers of folding cartons, plastic containers and flexible packaging. The solutions developed with security in mind can also have positive side effects in terms of better ergonomics in hospital.

The project is partly funded under VINNOVA's Challenge-driven innovation, and will run until January 2017.
