The European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing (Textile ETP) is the largest European open expert network of professionals involved in textile and clothing-related research and innovation.
The 18th Textile ETP Annual Conference will take place as a physical event on 14-15 May 2024 in Mechelen, Belgium.
Over two days, the event will present the EU Textile Research Partnership, the first EU funding program exclusively for the textile sector, and showcase the successes of textile start-ups supported by the European Innovation Council. We will explore the industry's future amidst technological shifts, new regulations, and evolving business models through plenary lectures, thematic sessions, and panel debates. The event also offers the opportunity to take part in networking opportunities and a site visit to HOGENT's FTILab+.
