Industrial Coating and Packaging Consortium (ICAP)



VISION
A leading consortium to drive innovations in industrial coating and packaging in Singapore.

MISSION
To conduct pre-competitive research in industrial coating and packaging and to foster the sharing and transfer of platform technologies through synergistic partnerships.

INTRODUCTION
The Industrial Coating And Packaging (ICAP) Consortium is a platform that helps companies reduce R&D risks and investments in new coating and packaging technologies by synergistically pooling R&D resources in pre-competitive projects. By doing so, companies can enhance and build new capabilities that will enable new product development or improve existing products and processes. Manufacturers need to keep abreast of new coating and packaging technologies and process developments that can help them meet the current challenges and requirements.
