Who we are
The European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing (Textile ETP)
The European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing (Textile ETP) was created in 2004 to match research and innovation needs and priorities of the European industry (represented by companies, associations, and clusters) with the knowledge, scientific and technological capacities of universities, research organisations and technology developers to raise the sector’s competitiveness through intensified collaborative research and innovation.
Through its broad membership base, the Textile ETP aims to represent the research and innovation interests of the entire manufacturing value chain from fibres to final textile-based products as well as directly allied industries.
Since 2013 the Textile ETP has been established as an international non-profit association under Belgian law with its permanent premises based in Brussels.
