Launch of the 3rd call of the European Textile Technology Marketplace ETTMa

After good results of the first two calls in Oct. 2011 and April 2012, the European Textile Technology Platform is today launching the 3rd call of the European Textile Technology Marketplace (ETTMa). This service should help to more easily, quickly and cost-effectively connect European companies which look for innovative textile technologies with researchers from across Europe which look for industrial evaluation and exploitation of their research results and technology prototypes. The ETTMa service works as an Open Innovation platform with a process similar to the TEPPIES system. The ETTMa service is free of charge and is available to all textile & clothing companies and related research and technology providers based in Europe.

Download below all necessary documentation:

- A presentation which explains how ETTMa works, summarises the results of the previous calls and provides the full timeline for this 3rd call.

- A reply form for technology searches from companies

- A reply form for technology offers from research organisations

The deadline for submitting technology searches or technology offers is Friday 7 December 2012.

The 2nd call already saw a more than doubling of industry participation compared to the 1st call. Still the total number was low compared to the number of companies connected to the European Technology Platform. Associations, clusters, technology centres, consultants etc. that work with companies on a daily basis are encouraged to promote the benefits of ETTMa among industry and to help even more companies to participate.

Further information about the results of the 1st two ETTMa calls and the Terms of Reference of this service are available for registered ETP experts in the document library of the internal members area of
