After encouraging results of the first call in late 2011, the European Textile Technology Platform is today launching the 2nd 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 1st call and provides the full timeline for this 2nd 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 15 June 2012.

As special effort should be made during this 2nd call to increase industry participation. The 1st call has shown that the response from researchers and technology providers to industry searches is very good, so this part of ETTMa works very well and should be more exploited by industry. 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 companies to participate.

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