ITA: Platform for sourcing protective masks

Platform for sourcing protective masks


In recent days the request for medical masks and protective wear across Europe has risen due to the spread of corona virus. The Institute of Textile Technology at RWTH Aachen University (ITA), Aachen/Germany, wants to help in providing a connection between demand and supply of protective wear, especially face masks.

The ITA has created the NeedMask platform, a non-profit registry for sourcing protective masks in Europe. The aim is to connect those producing masks to those needing them. The ITA is still looking for support from IT partners who want to scale-up the operation of the platform. Please contact Dr. David Schmelzeisen,
