The innovation cluster for textiles and flexible materials Techtera, Lyon/France, announced the official start of the Context program on October 11, 2018 during the kick-off meeting in Brussels/Belgium, bringing together representatives from 25 European countries.
Context is a European program that finances the networking activities of scientific and industrial experts in the field of intelligent textiles. Its aim is to promote exchanges between experts to generate research, development and innovative projects in the sector. The desire and even the need to open up as widely as possible to related fields such as electronics and design is part of the DNA of the project headed by the European textile network.
The project is organized around work groups that address the 5 different sectors health, transport, personal protective equipment, construction and sport.
