Conference "Innovating for Sustainability in European Textiles and Clothing" - 28 October 2015, Brussels
Textile and fashion products made in Europe are renowned for their creativity, in
novation, quality and increasingly the environmental and social responsibility with which they are produced.
Constant improvement in materials, production processes and supply chain management can further optimise the sustainability performance of the European textile and clothing industry.
However to achieve real step-changes in material circularity, resource-efficient manufacturing and smart on-demand business operations, radically new concepts, technologies and business models are required.
Join the “Innovating for Sustainability in European Textiles and Clothing” Conference to:
- Listen to European thought leaders on textile sustainability of the 21st century
- Discover industry innovators and technology disruptors working already today on the sustainability solutions of tomorrow
- Learn about tools and solutions that EU initiatives bring to the industry across Europe
- Understand how digitisation and material circularity can enable entirely new market approaches and business models
Representatives from the entire European fibres, textile and clothing value chain, from research and technology organisations, industry federations, consulting and service companies as well as policy makers and the media are expected for the event.
The event will be followed by EU research and innovation funding seminar and project brokerage event on 29 October at the same venue.
