INTELTEX: Intelligent multi-reactive textiles
The overall objective of INTELTEX is to develop a radically new approach to obtain intelligent textiles combining three innovative functions:
- continuous measurement of mechanical stresses applied to the textile structure,
- thermal self-regulated textile surfaces
- detection of chemicals (toxic volatile solvents…)

Partners : Nanocyl, Eurodye-CTC , Minerva , Protensive, Multitel, Arlen, Tissa, Dacon, EDANA, ALMA,ENSAIT, UMINHO, TUL, UBS, QMUL, IPFDD, CNRS, COMC-IHC, Peratech, FI-RI S.A, Colorific

STELLA - Stretchable Electronics for Large Area applications
The objective of the project is to provide a new technology for smart textiles. Typical applications are intelligent textiles and clothes, personnel healthcare or fitness monitoring.

The electronic systems for these applications have to be stretchable with soft touch nature in order not to hamper the comfort of the user and to be ideally almost non-noticeable to him. They should be reliably withstanding all mechanical and chemical requirements of clothes, in which they are integrated.

In the “STELLA” a consortium has developed a platform technology of interconnection, packaging and assembling technologies. For example a new generation of stretchable substrates based on non woven with stretchable conductor pattern for large area application has been developed
