President of TECHTERA
Two main events are worth noting
- 1 – With all the members and partners of the textile and flexible materials, we have considered changes in the market, but also the expectations of our members and of course the institutions. As such, in our roadmap, innovation integrates ever more applications such as clothing and furniture.
- 2 – The establishment of resources to support our firms in their innovation projects, from R&D tu business launching, thanks to various means of action:
- Application of the Performance Agreement
- Support for the development of innovative member companies
- Development of joint technology platforms to drive innovation
- More international outreach :
- In Europe, particularly with specific missions and funding for our innovation through European research projects
- Outside Europe, with as emblematic example, the signing of a bilateral agreement with Japan for privileged access to innovation on fibres and yarns
To all, thank you for your commitment to the development of our dynamic and innovative sector!
