Textile ETP to show key projects at ITMA 2015

The European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing (Textile ETP) will be showcasing its key projects at the upcoming ITMA 2015.

Textile ETP will exhibit at the trade show’s Research and Education Pavilion (R&E Pavilion) and will highlight the ‘Energy Made-to-Measure’ campaign and the 2BFUNTEX project at the world’s largest textile technology trade show.

Spearheaded by the Association of Universities for Textiles (AUTEX), 2BFUNTEX aims to boost collaboration between research centres and the industry, and to facilitate rapid adoption of innovative functional textile structures and textile-related materials.

Within the project, eight multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) have also been set up including antimicrobial textiles, biotechnologies, electro-spinning, flame retardancy, nanotechnologies, plasma, smart textiles and sustainable textiles.

The ‘Energy Made-to-Measure’ is a campaign coordinated by EURATEX and supported by the European Union to pursue greater energy efficiency in the textile and clothing industry and also involves several organisations from 11 countries currently.

The Textile ETP, initially launched in 2004, was established as a non-profit organisation by three founding members, European Apparel and Textile Confederation (EURATEX), European Network of Textile Research and Technology Organisations (TEXTRANET) and AUTEX.

Lutz Walter, secretary general of the Textile ETP said, “Our objectives include encouraging networking and collaboration, and facilitating access to funding opportunities and a textile technology marketplace. Hence, we are pleased to profile our projects at the R&E Pavilion.”

Charles Beauduin, president of CEMATEX, explained, "The R&E Pavilion will continue to provide excellent opportunities to educational and research organisations to share their R&D achievements and projects with the industry.

“To-date, we have over 30 exhibitors from 13 countries which will be using the ITMA platform to showcase their projects and capabilities, and to explore collaborations with exhibitors and visitors from all over the world,” he added.

The R&E Pavilion will feature a Speakers Platform for participating institutes to present their latest projects and a technical committee has been formed to select presentations.

To recognise outstanding achievements in textile and garment related postgraduate research, CEMATEX has launched the Research & Education Excellence Award. Participating institutions in the R&E Pavilion may nominate their post-graduate students for the Masters’ and Doctorate category awards. (AR)
