INDUSTRIAL AND CREATIVE DESIGN IN ADVANCED TEXTILE MANUFACTURING
Advanced textiles materials sector is an emerging sector focusing on the technical aspects and contributions of textile materials rather than o the aesthetics. However, in order to foster the innovation, higher education systems need to bring in the creativity culture to textile engineeringprogram in higher education as a way to unlock the innovation pottential in advanced textile manufacturing industry.
In this context, DESTEX project will develop the tools necessary for skills enhancement targeted to higher education in relation to innovation in order to obtain its objectives:
To support higher education students to acquire skills in interdisciplinary innovation based on creative and industrial design applied to the textile sector.
To foster student cooperation in a multidisciplinary approach in work-based projects.
To provide knowledge, skills and competences using virtual collaboration tools.
To promote the application of good practices for the enhancement of innovative skills.
DESTEX wil generate an impact to the different target groups including students of HEI’s (both design and textile), technical textiles’ companies and their managers as well as other stakeholders from the textile ecosystem.
Today we are publically launching the project website where you will be able to stay tuned for updates and major releases of the project results and outcomes.
