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.
The event entitled "From FP7 to HORIZON 2020: Making EU Research & Innovation Programmes fit for Small & Medium-sized Companies" featured presentations from 28 FP7 textile research projects across a wide range of subjects and also explored in detail how the European Commission and the European Technology Platform try to make European research, innovation & networking support programmes more accessible and manageable for industry, especially small and medium-sized companies from the textile and apparel sector.
All publicly available event documentation including the presentations at the plenary opening and closing sessions are available in the download area.
