Competency center gathers
the air filter industry 

Smart Textiles will create a new competency center together with the SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden and Swerea IVF. The center will focus on air filters and the purppose of the competence center is to promote collaborations between companies in the region. As an initial step, a free seminar will be held on the 3rd of October to determine the needs of the companies.


The goal of the competency center is to stimulate development and provide the companies with a natural platform.
– Issues regarding air filters are the same whether they concern a large system or a facial mask and this is why it is good for the companies to meet and exchange experiences, says Emma Holmström, who works at SP and who is also the project manager for the Air Filter Competency Center.

The three organisations hope that the seminar will incite the companies to take the opportunity to meet their business colleagues and influence the topics the competency center will focus on.
– The competency center depends on the companies to take an interest and that they want to participate. This is what we are going to find out during the seminar: what kind of help the companies want and what we can contribute with, Emma Holmström concludes.


The seminar on the Air Filter Competency Center takes place on the 3rd of October at 12:00-16:30 at Swerea IVF, 30 Argongatan, Mölndal, Sweden. Sign up to attend here:
