SmartX – the European Smart Textiles Accelerator 

Smart X should boost smart textiles innovation in Europe with a specific focus on developing a full smart textiles manufacturing value chain in Europe to help drive promising prototypes faster to market. During the 3 years project we will launch 3 funding calls expecting to support up to 40 individual projects with a total funding of € 2.4 million.

In addition, all supported companies will receive free coaching by project experts on how to overcome the main obstacles for commercialization of their smart textile innovations.
