The final Hackathon will take place on October 12 & 13 at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris during the 8th edition of Cosmetic 360, the international innovation trade show for the fragrance and cosmetics industry.

This unmissable event brings together all the players in the fragrance and cosmetics value chain. Organized in the heart of the show, the SupplyChain4ResponsibleBeauty Hackathon will address two key issues for the sector: the digital and environmental transitions.



Identify and track the life cycle of the product purchased in store or via the Internet in order to predict the end of life of the product, anticipate its restocking according to the needs of the consumer, its obsolescence and identify the need to recover the container.
