Textile Innovation Needs Advanced Manufacturing Technologies
Following a consultation with Technology Platform members during the summer months, the ETP secretariat issued a position paper on the draft roadmap of the Factories of the Future PPP (FoF) developed by the EFFRA Association. The document highlights the importance of manufacturing technology innovation for the textile industry especially in areas such as resource-efficiency, flexibility and versatility as well as manufacturing of novel materials and material combinations. Further follow-up will be made with EFFRA during the process of development of the final roadmap. The Textile ETP position paper and the FoF draft roadmap are available for ETP members in the document library in the internal area.
