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.

The consortium is integrated by eight partners from four European countries that combine wide expertise in the fields of education, innovation, research, and design. The project, titled ““Industrial and creative design in advanced textile Manufacturing (DESTEX)”, is a Strategic Partnership for Higher Education, co-funded by the European Commission, under the Erasmus+ programme.

The main goals of DESTEX are to develop a virtual training program in using creative and industrial design oriented applied in advanced textiles’ manufacturing, to create an industrial design and design thinking book of lectures for the intensive summer training, to develop an online platform for virtual hackathons and to elaborate a project handbook of good practices & open challenges called “training tools and methodologies to foster creativity and innovation within the advanced textile’s sector”

Additionally, DESTEX will organize an intensive summer training course in Milan on July 2021 to test and evaluate the different products generated during the project.
