Smart textiles – interdisciplinary development and marketing

Measure body functions simply with electrode shirts, functional knitwear with PC  thread, textiles with consistent reversible photochromic effect and extremely statically resilient 3-dimensional textiles.

The Thuringian SmartTex N etwork promotes new ideas, initiates collaboration projects and organises the transfer of knowledge between research and industry.

In the network, producers, developers and researchers work closely together to pool their research and development skills.

The ability to take a broader view helps business AND science

The network organises regular cross-sector workshops, seminars and symposia for this purpose. These constantly stimulate communication between businesses and initiate interdisciplinary collaborations. The exchange of experience between science and industry is systematically promoted in the network and research findings that are ready to be utilised find their way from institutes to businesses more quickly.

Encourage joint R&D projects

How can medical and technical sensors be integrated into textiles? How can electricity be conducted and generated or heat and cold be produced with textiles? How can powerful structures, which can be used to make stadium roofs, wind turbine rotor blades, bridges or walls, be created from 3D textiles and air? These are all applications that are being developed cooperatively in the network. With smart textile-based materials new opportunities open up for the clothing industry, but also for the automotive industry, medical engineering, building systems, process engineering and the construction industry.

The Thuringian SmartTex Network currently has over 40 members: companies from the textiles industry, energy technology, plastics engineering and other hi-tech sectors, along with research institutes such as the Thuringian Institute of Textile and Plastics Research (TITK) and the Thuringia/Vogtland Textiles Research Institute (TITV). The SmartTex Network offers them a platform for interdisciplinary collaboration to create innovative products and prepare these products for market.

Since 2011 research and development projects worth more than 10 million euros have been initiated and supported.

At our exhibition stand you can see our work for yourself and find out about a selection of projects by businesses in the SmartTex Network.
