Abstract: Reusable packaging systems (RPS) are increasingly explored as an alternative to single-use packaging. Current research lacks focus and direction. This article defines a research agenda based on the findings of a 1-day workshop with participants actively involved in UKRI and EU funded projects for reusable packaging (Perpetual Plastic for Food to Go (PPFTG) (NE/V01076X/1), Many Happy Returns - Enabling reusable packaging systems NE/V010638/1, A Systems Analysis Approach to Reduce Plastic Waste in Indonesian Societies (PISCES) (NE/V006428/1), 101059923 - Buddie-Pack - horizon-CL6-2021-Circbio-01). Findings identify 21 Consumer and Industry factors for future research, and highlight the need for design to improve consumer interaction and experience, to develop inclusive design solutions, and to help resolve issues related to hygiene and contamination. Additionally, the role of design as an enabler to increase transparency between stakeholders across the value chain was highlighted.
