Travelling all the way from Germany, Christoph Bach, Head of Production Systems for Lifescience & Smart Textiles at RWTH Aachen University will speak on future applications for 3D textiles including the integration of smart systems. Christoph's colleague, Dr. Dieter Veit will outline Aachen University's approach to investment in education on advanced textile structures used for the production composites covering material characteristics, latest automated textile pro-cessing and the textile preforming approach, composite processing, design and testing procedures.

This conference will focus on new technologies and innovations that will generate product and market opportunities for the technical and nonwoven textiles industry into the future. It will feature papers on future trends in natural and man-made fibres and textiles; research, development and innovation and end-use applications.
