Iggesund Academy

Iggesund Academy

Iggesund Academy is the overall name of Iggesund Paperboard’s initiative to spread knowledge about paperboard and paperboard usage. The venture encompasses everything from the production of knowledge and reference materials to the company’s visitor programme and direct contact with educational institutions.

Student initiative

For the past three years Iggesund has cooperated with several universities in the UK with the aim of enabling design students to get a taste of the reality they will encounter when they enter working life. Together with an external educational company, Brief Cases, Iggesund has produced briefs on topical subjects in the graphics and packaging sectors, which the universities have then integrated into their programmes. The subjects have varied from “What will tomorrow’s packaging look like?” to “How can we exploit the advantages of digital printing in small-scale packaging production?” but have also included how to produce infographics on sustainability issues or how to describe Iggesund’s programme to encourage farmers in northern England to start growing energy crops.
