To ensure the long-term competitiveness of the European Textile and Clothing industry and to reinforce the position of Europe as a leading global player in the development and manufacturing of fibres, textiles, textile-based products, and apparel, the Textile ETP pursues the following key objectives:

  • The organisation of an effective European-wide expert network involving industry, research organisations, public authorities, financial institutions, and other stakeholders to join forces and coordinate their efforts in research, development, and innovation to benefit the European Textile and Clothing Industry.
  • The definition of common industrial strategies and implementation of a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) through targeted collaborative research, technology development, and innovation efforts within the textile sector and in cooperation with related industries.
  • The development of structures and measures to improve this industrial sector's overall research, development, and innovation framework conditions focuses specifically but not exclusively on removing financial, educational, legal, and regulatory obstacles.

Overall, the European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing will remain focused on allocating its resources to the most promising fields of R&D and innovation action activitiesto ensure long-term industry competitiveness for the benefit of economic growth, jobs and sustainable development in Europe. It will continue to operate openly and transparently, inviting every organisation and individual interested in research, development, and innovation across Europe to join its activities.
