Well over 100 participants from 23 regions across 19 EU countries attended the public launch of the RegioTex initiative held on 13-14 April at the Committee of the Regions in Brussels. The event was co-organised by the European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing (Textile ETP) and EURATEX - the European Apparel and Textile Confederation.
The RegioTex initiative brings together stakeholders from the textile, clothing and related industries and public authorities in a joint effort to develop and implement strategies that will facilitate and accelerate the emerging industrial renewal in traditional manufacturing regions across Europe. The goal is to strengthen the regional textile innovation capacities such as clusters, technology or training centres and to establish effective European collaboration and peer-to-peer learning between regional actors.
