2BFuntex: a new coordination action to boost the collaboration between research industry to enhance rapid industrial uptake of innovative functional textiles

Paul Kiekens UGent (2012) 12th World Textile Conference, Proceedings. p.77-82
abstract
Abstract: 2BFUNTEX is a European Coordination Action with the objective to bring together all innovation actors in the field of functional textile structures and textile related materials, fostering a multidisciplinary approach between universities, research institutes, industry (especially SMEs) and sector associations. The 2BFUNTEX international team aims to identify technological gaps and eliminate barriers resulting in a faster industrial uptake of functional materials with new functionalities and improved performance. Technological needs will be mapped, new joint international research disciplines will be identified and multidisciplinary laboratory teams will be created. Training materials for research and industry purposes will be elaborated and implemented, allowing a common language regarding functional textiles, and increasing the number of well-trained people in this field. 2BFUNTEX partners will organise and participate in conferences, workshops and brokerage events. Through the development of an interactive website with an extensive database, collaboration will be boosted and rapid industrial uptake catalysed and enhanced.
