European Masterclass: Innovating in Smart Textiles

Next week, on 11 May, we will host our last Smart Tex­tiles Mas­ter­class ded­i­cat­ed to Prod­uct-Mar­ket Fit and Busi­ness Mod­els. We take this occa­sion to look back on the results and the sol­id net­work we have built and invite you to join our Final Con­fer­ence in Milan on 31 May & 1 June 2022.

Smart tex­tiles and wear­ables are the inno­va­tion fron­tier for the tex­tile, cloth­ing, and elec­tron­ics indus­tries expect­ed to open up niche mar­kets in sports, per­son­al pro­tec­tion, health­care, smart inte­ri­ors, fash­ion, enter­tain­ment, and gam­ing. How­ev­er, the knowl­edge about key tech­nolo­gies and lead­ing play­ers is frag­ment­ed. There­fore, this mas­ter­class com­bined insights and the lat­est devel­op­ments from lead­ing tech­nol­o­gy devel­op­ers, indus­try inno­va­tors, and end-mar­ket experts across all dis­ci­plines of the Euro­pean smart tex­tiles ecosystem.

Hand in hand with our tech­ni­cal expert Daniela Zavec from Tit­era, we curat­ed a 15-month pro­gramme of 7 mod­ules ded­i­cat­ed to the Smart Tex­tiles inno­va­tion with a 360 degrees approach. In total, 1000 atten­dees, includ­ing 270 reg­is­tered experts and inno­va­tion lead­ers in Smart tex­tiles across Europe, affil­i­at­ed with 52 organ­i­sa­tions, could par­tic­i­pate in live ses­sions and connect. 

Smart textiles and wearables are the innovation frontier for the textile, clothing, and electronics industries expected to open up niche markets in sports, personal protection, healthcare, smart interiors, fashion, entertainment, and gaming. However, the knowledge about key technologies and leading players is fragmented. Therefore, this masterclass combined insights and the latest developments from leading technology developers, industry innovators, and end-market experts across all disciplines of the European smart textiles ecosystem.

Hand in hand with our technical expert Daniela Zavec from Titera, we curated a 15-month programme of 7 modules dedicated to the Smart Textiles innovation with a 360 degrees approach. In total, 1000 attendees, including 270 registered experts and innovation leaders in Smart textiles across Europe, affiliated with 52 organisations, could participate in live sessions and connect.

Join us in Milan for the Final Smart Textiles Masterclass
