Putting the puzzle pieces of the emerging smart textiles multidisciplinary value chain together
he key ambition SmartX
is to shape and establish the industrial value chains that are needed to industrial manufacturing of smart textiles and to set up the
ecosystem for full commercial exploitation. Avalue chain has been composed, see below.
It starts from the currently existing but separated value chains for IoT/Electronics and for textiles. The key missing ‘nodes’ are indicated. SmartX
address these missing nodes and gaps to build
a comprehensive framework. The trailblazer projects first examples of the parts that need ‘to emerge’.
