The second meeting of SUSTEXNET project, funded by Mediterranean Sea Basin Program ENPI CBC MED, will take place in Tunis on June 23 and 24, 2014.
 
The SUSTEXNET project aims to establish a network of cooperation among the major textile agents along the Mediterranean basin to increase the competitiveness and sustainability throughout the textile sector, through the combination of technology and knowledge transfer, appropriate capitalization and corrective actions.
 
The project will develop a detailed analysis of the current weaknesses of the textile sector on both shores of the Mediterranean, establishing synergies among stakeholders to minimize the environmental impact of industry and maximize quality and productivity.
 
Seeking to strengthen cross-border cooperation, the event will bring together all the consortium partners: Confederation of Egyptian European Business Association (CEEBA), Federation of Egyptian Industries (FEI), Competitiveness Cluster of Monastir (MFCPOLE), Textile Technical Center Tunisia (CETTEX), Arts Research (ARTS), Confindustria Bari and Barletta (Confindustria), Instituto Valenciano Business Competitiveness (IVACE) and Association of Textile Research (AITEX). The purpose of this second meeting is to evaluate the work of the first six months, for which the degree of fulfillment of the objectives will be evaluated and a deep discussion would be held in order to reach agreements about the next steps in accordance with the established schedule.
 
The total budget of the SUSTEXNET project is €1,488,229.16 and is financed by a contribution of 1,339,406.24 million (90%) by the European Union (Programme ENPI Mediterranean Sea Basin CBC) through the European Neighbourhood and Partnership.
