A NOVEL INDUSTRIAL VALUE CHAIN
Bringing smart textile products to market quickly and at relevant price points requires the establishment of a novel, updated and dynamic industrial value chain, composed of textiles and microelectronics manufacturers, integrators and assemblers, data processing and IoT experts, technology providers, distributors, funding providers, and end users.
40 TRAILBLAZER PROJECTS FUNDED
SmartX will fund a portfolio of at least 40 Trailblazer projects, with a total budget of 2.4 million € to pioneer different stages of the novel smart textiles value chain. These projects will be selected by an international selection committee of recognized experts in the smart textiles field. The funded projects will be coached throughout the entire process.
3 HIGH-POTENTIAL END MARKETS
Funded projects will mostly tackle 3 high-potential end markets: protective wear (including sports gear), industrial applications, healthcare and well-being, i.e. markets where Europe has leadership positions. Small and medium-sized companies from across the EU and certain associated countries can apply for funding through open calls.
