Digitisation: A key theme for the textile industry!

17 . 09 . 2021

The evolution of technologies, consumption patterns and the disruption of supply chains in recent years have led manufacturers to ever more flexibility, agility and efficiency. Faced with competition from low-cost foreign countries, French industry must innovate and offer increasingly specialised and distinctive services.

These developments are accompanied by digital changes for which the Techtera innovation cluster is adapting its offer to be ever closer to its members and support them in their transformation.

To do this, Techtera has set up:

  • The “Industry of the Future Club ICI4.0”, which brings together manufacturers who want to learn more about Industry 4.0, through the exchange of best practices, monitoring new technologies, visits and discovery of more mature companies and organisations, etc.
  • A new physical site with the integration of Techterafab. This is a technical base of 300 m² pre-equipped to accommodate collective innovation projects or demonstrators for prototyping.

The innovation cluster also takes part in projects and events on this theme, in particular through:

  • Participation in the development of two EDIH (European Digital Innovation Hub), which aim to support textile industry companies in their digital transformation.
  • The organisation of the conference on digital transformation, a lever for the textile industry, during the TEXTIVAL business convention, for business meetings concerning textiles and flexible materials. This will take place on October 7, 2021 at La Sucrière in Lyon – organised by Unitex, with Techtera.

Techtera thus supports you on a daily basis in the transformation of the textile industry.
