To deepen cooperation in the areas of research, development and innovation, the Brazilian National Service for Industrial Training (SENAI), Brasilia/Brazil, the SENAI CETIQT Institute for Innovation in Biosynthesis and Fibers (ISI B&F), Rio de Janeiro/Brazil, and the Saxon Textile Research Institute (STFI), Chemnitz/Germany, have jointly signed a memorandum of understanding. Future projects will focus on bio-based materials from fiber plants and waste from the agricultural industry, digital manufacturing, Industry 4.0 and surface functionalization.
The cooperating partners SENAI, ISI B&F and STFI presented their research focus areas and technological possibilities to a broad group of participants from Brazilian companies and research institutions in an online event.
In the upcoming weeks and months, further workshops are planned to present new opportunities for cooperation and innovation to the textile companies in the region. Together with the Brazilian colleagues, ideas are to be concretized and transferred into joint cooperation projects.

»Together we can advance developments in the field of bio-based materials, their application in interaction with new digital manufacturing technologies and propose solutions to the industry.«
Dr. Heike Illing-Günther, Managing Director, STFI
The work of the new SENAI Innovation Institutes (Institutos Senai de Inovação, ISI) aims to build a bridge between scientific research and the needs of the Brazilian economy. The focus is set on applied research and implementation. Key issues are the development of new products, creating solutions tailored to the needs of companies and generating new business ideas for start-ups. The SENAI Institute for Innovation, Biosynthesis and Fibers (ISI B&F) is one of 26 Brazilian research institutions created by the Brazilian National Service for Industrial Training (SENAI) since 2012.
