International conference to launch the new Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda for the European Textile and Clothing Sector and to showcase the high-tech materials, advanced production technologies, new business models and growth markets for the textile industry of the future
In its transition towards a 4th Industrial Revolution the European Textile and Clothing industry rapidly adopts advanced digitised manufacturing processes and technologies, uses smart materials and explores new high value added growth markets for textile based solutions. To map out future technological and market applications for textiles and the research and new knowledge needed to fully realise these opportunities, the European Textile Technology Platform has developed a Strategic Research Agenda for the next 10 years. This Research Agenda together with many industry, research, technology and project cases will be presented at a high-level conference on 12-13 October 2016 in Brussels.
On 12 October a series of plenary sessions will be dedicated to key technology developments in the major manufacturing stages such as fabric formation, textile surface processing and assembly and fashion production. On 13th October a succession of plenary and parallel sessions will explores market opportunities and technology trends in key technical textile application areas such as construction, health care, sports, protection, environment and agriculture. The event is expected to bring together industry innovators, technology providers, researchers, clusters and other actors from the textile and clothing from across Europe.
