The European Technology Platform (ETP) for the Future of Textiles and Clothing is an open expert’s network of professionals involved in textile and clothing related research and innovation across Europe.
In order to ensure the long-term competitiveness of the European Textile and Clothing industry and to reinforce the position of Europe as a leading global player in the development and manufacturing of fibres, textiles, textile-based products and apparel, the ETP for the Future of Textiles and Clothing will pursue the following key objectives:

  • Establishment of an effective European-wide expert network involving industry, research organizations, public authorities, financial institutions and other stakeholders to join forces and coordinate their efforts in the field of research, development and innovation to the benefit of the European Textile and Clothing Industry.
  • Definition of a common strategic industry vision and elaboration of a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) to implement this vision through targeted and coordinated research, technology development and innovation efforts.
  • Development of structures and measures to improve the overall research, development and innovation framework conditions of this industrial sector focussing specifically but not exclusively on the removal of financial, educational, legal and regulatory obstacles.
