This year’s conference will include sessions on the culture of innovation in organizations general dynamics, effective teams & work styles in innovation; military end uses: research turned into projects; latest developments in E-Textiles; perspectives from the brand owners on what they want from smart fabrics; and how design, technology development and end products can be integrated better?
