The Textile Technology Centre of Andalusia (El Centro Tecnológico del Textil de Andalucia or CITTA) has submitted a proposal called iTex to the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union (FP7).

iTex, which stands for Intelligent Management of European textile production, aims to evolve a methodology for companies to help them improve and optimize their textile production system.

The proposal also aims to develop software that can be implemented in systems that are currently owned by the companies. This tool will also have a self-learning module based on artificial intelligence.

The iTex project involves participation of German, Belgium and Greek companies as technology partners and globally renowned textile companies from Spain, Italy and Turkey. Two Andalusian enterprises – Yoedu Children's Fashion, a kidswear company, and iAvanza, an IT solutions providing company – are also participating in the project.

CITTA will also participate as a partner in two other proposals submitted to the FP7. The first project focuses on the use of natural fibres as reinforcement and constitution of organic matrices that lead to sustainable materials, which would reduce the use of petro-based materials in textile industry. The second project relates to developing software to help textile companies in decision-making.

According to Michelangelo Miller, Manager of CITTA , the proposals put forward by CITTA before FP7 are market-oriented and would help textile companies to become more competitive.

FP7 aims to strengthen industrial competitiveness and meet the research needs of other community policies, thereby contributing to the creation of a knowledge-based society, building on a European Research Area and complementing activities at national and regional level.
