Prominent speakers from Europe, Canada and the United States will discuss groundbreaking initiatives in fibres and textiles to a broad audience of entrepreneurs, researchers, industry specialists, artists and students at the Marché Bonsecours (350 St-Paul Street, 8:30 am to 5:30 pm).

Held during Expo Hightex, this scientific Colloquium is the result of an international collaboration between Concordia's Faculty of Fine Arts, Hexagram, CTT Group, Techtera (Lyon), and ITECH (Lyon).

The latest developments in the following four themes will be presented:
- Textiles and security/safety
- Textiles and sustainable development
- Textiles and health/sports
- Textiles in the arts and cultural industries

The Colloquium is an unparalleled opportunity for enterprise/university collaborations and will close with a special presentation by the Cirque du Soleil featuring their innovative use of textiles over the years.

To provide you with some stunning visual encounters with electronic textile innovations, Concordia University is pleased to invite you to a reception Monday, October 6 at 4:00 pm, where you can discover the researchers' creations.
