Clothing, furniture, buildings, vehicles: textiles are ubiquitous in our daily lives – and their growing consumption not only requires large amounts of water, land, and primary raw materials, but also has the fourth highest negative impact on the environment and on climate change in the EU.
Design and development in the textile sector are therefore facing a key question: how to introduce new, exciting technologies while taking measures for a more sustainable or even circular use of textile products?
This and other topics will be discussed on 5 December 2023 at the NOI Techpark in Bolzano: “Textile Innovations and Sustainability” will bring together researchers, designers, and producers from the textile sector, promoting exchange and providing valuable insights into experiences, new approaches and projects.
The event will be held in English, participation is free of charge. Registration required by 30 November.
