With over 500 research and business projects since its inception in 2006, Smart Textiles is not only recognized as an engine in the Swedish textile industry, but also established as an important international player.

 

Clothing that monitors your health or measures your movements. Technology that makes it possible to recycle textile fibers and re-use them.

In the future, the industry will move from being a fabric supplier to being a part of social development. Textile innovations that improve both people’s everyday lives and provide benefits for industry, healthcare and the environment. But innovations do not arise in a vacuum. An open environment is required where voices from many different backgrounds are met and conversations are without prejudice to finding both desired and unexpected solutions. Smart Textiles is the innovation environment in northern Europe.

Research, business, institutions and the public sector meet to find future solutions today. With a comprehensive offering, with everything from basic research to prototyping, Smart Textiles is the obvious partner when a textile idea is to be realized or a need is met with textile technology.
