Information event on Smart Textiles funding for SMEs
Organized by our German partner DITF Denkendorf on November 13, 2019, the half-day information event explained the goals, structure, and approach of SmartX.
Part of the event was focused on explaining how the SmartX programme aims to improve the development and production of smart textiles and to create new, cross-sector value creation networks in the European Union.
Around 40 participants had the chance to hear capturing lectures from applied research on smart textiles and e-textiles from the point of view of (1) fibre-based materials and textiles, (2) microsystems, and (3) data technology. By highlighting successful industrial examples, the lecturers brought to light the current status and hoped to inspire future possibilities.
Speakers included Lutz Walter, Project Coordinator of SmartX and Secretary General of Textile ETP.
The event offered an excellent opportunity to get first-hand information about funding options, learn about current and future developments for smart textiles, talk to potential partners from the various industries and, if needed, to initiate joint activities.
