Innovation workshop – Textiles, flexible materials & Energy

22 . 10 . 2021
Webinar in english (9h-13h)

Techtera, for the COST action CONTEXT, organizes a half day virtual event on Textiles / Soft materials & Energy on 22nd October 2021.

Smart textiles are more and more present in our daily life. Most of the efforts are focused on new applications, washability, standardization, etc… However, despite all the research investment, energy production, supply and storage are still a challenge which is highly linked to the final target. Topic of interest are for example: fibers that generates electricity, textiles that are able to store electricity (like batteries), photovoltaic textiles and soft panels,…etc… This event aims to link the textile industry and the research & development sector on the crucial topic of the energy in the smart textiles domain.

This specific event covers the perimeters of all working groups of the CONTEXT network: sport & wearables, health & medical, building & infrastructure, PPE and transportation.

This webinar will give an overview of the state of the art on energy production, supply and storage for smart textiles.
