The Seventh Annual Public Conference of the European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing will take place from 29 to 30 March 2012 in Brussels, Belgium.
The event will feature presentations from a wide variety of textile research projects funded under the a Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The projects are furthering innovation and knowledge in fields ranging from new fibre and textile material developments to textile functionalisation and processing, new developments in protective textiles and other technical textile markets, new technologies and business models for consumer textile products, textile sustainability, and recycling.
The presentations will show how the European Commission and the European Technology Platform are working to make European research, innovation and networking support programmes more accessible and manageable for industry, especially small and medium-sized companies.
In addition to the project presentations, the conference programme will also feature keynote speeches, panel discussions and a dissemination session on the CROSSTEXNET ERA-Net project.
