In this New Year 2024, we would like to send you our warmest wishes for success and innovation. May this year be synonymous with progress and dynamism for our sector, which has a rich history and looks forward to a great future.
Within our innovation cluster, may you continue to forge fruitful links between those working in the textile sector and those in other fields. This will strengthen our united power to meet the challenges that arise. May every thread of our collaboration contribute to reinforcing the strong and resilient fabric of our industry.
Let us continue our efforts to promote responsible and environmentally friendly practices, thus contributing to the construction of a sustainable and ethical textile industry. Together, let us meet the challenges of digital transformation and optimisation of processes. May our competitiveness cluster remain a catalyst for innovative ideas, an incubator for promising projects, and reinforce the possibilities for bringing innovations on to the market.
In 2023, there were twenty-seven R&D projects financed for the sum of nearly €70 million. These projects include seven European projects and seven support missions to international markets. These figures attest to our ability to innovate, to meet challenges and to maintain a level of excellence that positions us as a benchmark within the textile industry. At the same time, the change in our visual identity, with a complete overhaul of our graphic charter, symbolises our desire for modernisation and renewal.
