Smart Textiles – Interdisciplinary Development and Path to Market


Easy measuring of bodily functions via an electrode shirt, functional knitwear with PCM cotton, basalt fabric, embroidered implants, static heavy-duty 3D textiles... the SmartTex Network in Thuringia brings new ideas forward, initiates partnership projects and organises knowledge transfer between researchers and industry.


Within the network, producers, developers and scientists work closely together to pool existing research and development capabilities.


Thinking Outside of the Box Helps Businesses AND Science


Here the network office organises regular cross-industry workshops, seminars and symposia. In this way, communication between the companies ensures consistently new impetus, while interdisciplinary collaboration is made easier. The exchange of experiences between science and industry is systematically promoted within the network. This means that already-exploitable research findings more quickly find their way from institutions to companies.

Promoting Cross-Industry Cooperation, Implementing R&D Projects


How can medical and technical sensors be integrated into textiles? How can textiles be powered with and produced using electricity? Or be produced with warm and cold? How can 3D textiles and air give rise to high-performance structures that are realised in stadium roofs, gliders for Jetman, or walls? These are some of the approaches pursued collaboratively within the network. Smart textile-based materials create new opportunities for the clothing industry, the automotive industry, medical technology, building equipment, process engineering, the building industry and more. We manage these partnerships:  

     

  • Organisation of workshops, symposia, seminars for direct exchange of information between researchers, developers and producers

  • Initiating and managing R&D projects

  • Assistance in collaboration between companies, developers and scientists: cross-sector, interdisciplinary, internationally

  • Co-development and marketing of innovative products

  •  


Currently, the SmartTex Network in Thuringia has more than 50 members – from Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands. These are companies in the textile industry, power engineering, plastics engineering and other high-tech sectors and research institutes such as the Thuringian Institute of Textile and Plastics Research e.V. (Thüringer Institut für Textil- und Kunststoff-Forschung, TITK), the Thuringia-Vogtland Textile Research Institute (Textilforschungsinstitut Thüringen-Vogtland e.V., TITV) and the Institute of Textile Technology (Institut für Textiltechnik) at RWTH Aachen. Since 2011, research and development projects of more than 15 million euros have been initiated and accompanied. Some projects from our member companies will be presented at the exhibition stand.
