BTRA organising 57th Joint Technological Conference
Feb '17
Bombay Textile Research Association (BTRA) is organising the 57th Joint Technological Conference in Mumbai on February 17-18, 2017. This conference is held every year by each of the Indian textile research associations (TRA) in rotation. Dr Kavita Gupta, textile commissioner, has given her consent to be the chief guest at this year’s conference.

Ahmedabad Textile Industry’s Research Association (ATIRA), South India Textile Research Association (SITRA) and Northern India Textile Research Association (NITRA) will participate in the conference along with BTRA.

The papers for presentation in this premier conference will be based on recent R&D trends and of immediate importance to the industries in all major textile areas from the four TRAs. The conference provides threadbare discussions on R&D carried out by the four TRAs and the possibility of adopting them in the industry.

BTRA is planning to have a dedicated session on ‘Geosynthetics’ and 12 papers will be presented on it. This particular session is jointly being organised with the office of the textile commissioner, ministry of textiles.

Besides Geosynthetics, other topics like eco-friendly fabrics, emerging areas in the textile industry, product development, protective textiles and spinning among others will also be covered at the conference.

German textile machinery manufacturing companies have shown interest in participating in this conference by way of presentation and networking with the participants. (KD)
