To create an innovation culture in the Indian textiles and clothing industry, the Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI) has launched InnoTex 2018. Being orgainsed as a part of CITI’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the contest is for innovations since April 1, 2017. It is open for individuals or a team of individuals not exceeding four. 
 
The contest will invite entries on innovative ideas/concept that has been devised for best design, method, process, product and cost reduction in any area from ‘ginning to garment’, CITI said in a press release.
 
“Innovation contests are very important for any industry, more particularly the textiles manufacturing sector, not only to improve the standard of the industry but also to enhance the overall competitiveness of the industry at an international level,” said CITI chairman Sanjay K Jain. He said that innovation is the need of the hour for any industry to grow and the contest “will help create innovation culture, which is sadly missing in the industry”.
 
InnoTex will give boost to the ideas of innovators by enabling them to showcase their talent to the industry leaders and get instant recognition. The contest will also bridge the gap between innovators and the end-user industry and would further guide the researchers about the actual demand of the industry in these areas.
 
CITI Young Entrepreneurs Group (YEG) under the chairmanship of Prashant Mohota has been entrusted with the task of organising InnoTex. YEG, which is an integral part of CITI has been formed for nurturing young minds/talent of the textiles and clothing Industry into dynamic leaders of tomorrow.
 
“Companies/institutions cannot directly participate in InnoTex 2018, but can sponsor individuals or teams of innovators,” said Mohota. Winners will receive cash awards apart from getting recognition in front of the entire textile and clothing fraternity.
 
A jury of distinguished experts and leaders of the textile industry will be soon formed. The jury will evaluate the work of the innovators and finally select the winners.
 
The final round of the contest will be held on November 27-28 at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi, along with CITI Global Textiles Conclave 2018.
 
The entire application process will be online on CITI website. (RKS)
