Textile ETP attends the Reservist project's General Assembly

On 15 and 16 February, the Textile ETP attended the General Assembly Meeting of the Reservist project.

The COVID-19 crisis has shown that several types of protective and medical equipment, products and services are crucial, including the ability to deploy them rapidly. Because of cost factors, these products, or at least critical components for them, are often produced outside the EU. Once things normalize, there will be a large pressure to return to that situation.​ The RESERVIST project aims to set up alternative lines called ‘reservist cells’, that can be activated within 48 hours, in order to switch easily from a day-to-day production line to one that focuses on products and services needed in time of crisis.

The first day was dedicated to the technical level (Manufacturing level, Technical developments, Demonstration of RESERVIST cells), followed by a presentation of the Network setup and logistics, and the Digital Platform. On February 16, We followed up on project management, coordination, innovation management, and impact activities on the second day.

The Textile ETP presented the state of the art of content strategy implemented.
