Textile ETP

Our successful first Brokerage Event brought the latest on smart textiles to an engaged audience of SmartX Community members. 

Numerous SmartX community members joined us via video-conference to hear expert presentations on the current developments in the smart textile industry and learn about the 2nd SmartX call for funding.

The event consisted of two panels:

  • The first one addressed smart textiles state-of-the-art, market trends, and success stories. After opening words from SmartX coordinator Lutz Walter (Textile ETP), the attendees heard from other industry leaders: James Hayward (IDTechEx, see below), Joao Gome (CeNTI), Francesca Rosella (CuteCircuit) and smart textiles expert Etienne Fradin-Beaugerie.

  • In his highly anticipated presentation, James Hayward covered the following points: (1) The size of the market in e-textiles today, including the different applications which are currently generating the most revenue; (2) Key challenges that face the industry today, notably focusing on application validation and technology/supply chain maturity; (3) Outlook and forecasts for e-textiles into the future.

  • The second panel featured Miquel Ridao of Sensing Tex, a successful 1st call applicant who recounted his experience applying for SmartX funding. Selection Committee member Christian Dalsgaard of Ohmatex shared his advice for startups and SMEs responding to the 2nd call.
