The aim of this study is to identify: a) the specific issues that are the basis of marketing, logistics, and ethics for packaging innovation management and b) the main trends in packaging design projects referring to marketing, logistics, and ethics dimensions, especially in term of their integration. Combining desk and field research, it is possible to delineate integration trends in packaging innovation projects and to identify new perspectives in packaging design.
