Matchmaking Fridays – Textiles Edition

The second edition, focused on the Textile sector, will take place on 5 March 2021.

Flexible & Wearable Electronics (FWE) in textiles offers all kinds of possibilities in fields such as medical, sport, artistic, aerospace, military, manufacturing, construction and much more.

Possibilities offered by converging textile and electronic can push limits by extending the functionality and usefulness of common fabrics. The development of smart materials allows for a wide spectrum of functions, for instance: flexibility, ergonomics, low power consumption, integration and eventually autonomy.

FWE can integrate a high level of intelligence in textiles, especially regarding interaction with the environment and users, thereby opening an endless window of opportunities.

This edition is endorsed by Techtera, the European innovation cluster at the heart of textile transformation, and SmartX, the European smart textiles accelerator.
