Industry leadership for the platform l.jpg

Industry Leadership for the Platform

Slide15 l.jpg

ETP Industry Leadership – current status

  • Industry leadership in GC is a great plus, but how connecting/multiplying are the individual members

  • Industry involvement at operational level (TEG’s etc.) is weak

  • Industry involvement in EU research projects is improving, but true industry leadership is still rare

  • Industry involvement differs greatly by country

  • Industry awareness/commitment to ETP at top management level is way too low

  • The current economic situation does not help

  • Compared to other ETP’s our perceived industry leadership is medium

    Industry commitment & leadership is the n° 1 condition for continued ETP success

Slide16 l.jpg

ETP Actions that could stimulate more industry involvement


  • training courses for industry on advanced technologies & materials

  • exploiting the TEPPIES system for brokerage of industrial research projects

  • EU project results dissemination which really reaches the industry

  • developing content for www.textile-platform.euwhich is valued by industry

  • Industry-oriented workshops with related sectors/platforms

  • Finding ways to collect regular input/guidance from industry for desired ETP actions.

Slide17 l.jpg

From industry involvement to industry (thought) leadership


  • Collecting industry input (“thoughts”) in a broad & coordinated but also quick & cost-effective way – Where? How? By whom?

  • Review & prioritise ideas & decide on actions in a collective & transparent way to avoid individual “actionisme”

  • Provide wherever possible timely & concise feedback on new actions undertaken & results achieved

  • Define 1 committed industry champion (supported by Sherpa) for each action

Industry training actions l.jpg

Industry Training Actions


Organisation of focussed industry-oriented practical training courses on advanced technological subjects at European level to supplement or up-grade national training actions in relevant technological areas

Industry training actions21 l.jpg

Industry Training Actions

3 Components:

Industry training actions22 l.jpg

Industry Training Actions


  • Duration: 1,5 - 2 days max.

  • Content: very focussed, very practical, but at highest technical level

  • Trainers: internationally leading academic , technological and market experts in the subject domain concerned

  • Academy style (modular, certifiable)

  • Location: held in research institutes with relevant technology pilot facilities, not universities (industry more familiar institute environment)

Industry training actions23 l.jpg

Industry Training Actions


  • Mix of group sessions and individualsessions

  • Training language English, local language translation only in cases of exceptional need.

  • Funding: self-funded through participation fees (possible start-up support through public funding opportunities to be investigated)

  • Recording of training sessions and provision of training material in electronic or print format as well as their access options (ETP website, on-line training platforms, web broadcasting) to be investigated

Industry training actions24 l.jpg

Industry Training Actions


  • Selected subjects of high-industrial relevance (taking into account local industry state of the art and develeopment)

  • Possibly structured according to the TEG structure of the Technology Platform. Initial selection of 2 topics per TEG.

  • Starting point could be the availability of pilot facilities and technological experts within Textranet institutes (to be discussed)

Industry training actions25 l.jpg

Industry Training Actions

Next Steps

  • Agreement on long-list of subject proposals between Textranet & AUTEX

  • Consultation with industry, selection of subjects short list

  • Identification of trainers and training facilities

  • Further discussion on organisational details

  • Launch of first round of 2-3 pilot training sessions in 2010

  • Assessment, go/no-go for further implementation, organisational fine-tuning

Etp funding eu funding dissemination services l.jpg

ETP Funding EU Funding & Dissemination Services

Ec funding l.jpg

EC Funding

  • EC call for collaboration projects between different ETP’s

  • Several opportunities exist to work with NanoFutures, EU-Mat and the Consumer Goods ETP’s

Project dissemination services l.jpg

Project Dissemination Services

General idea:

  • Leveraging the power of the ETP network to organise more effective project dissemination actions with more industry-reach for all ETP textile research projects


  • Clustering of related projects

  • Develop privileged cooperations with established conferences, trade fairs, trade magazines, publishing houses, national industry federations etc.

  • Support projects with production & placement of dissemination materials

    Ultimate concept:

  • Projects pay a small sum (subcontract ETP) for dissemination services and thereby strengthen the network to which they partly owe their existence and which ensures future projects (= beneficiaries pay!)

Project dissemination services37 l.jpg

Project Dissemination Services

First Steps:

  • GC decides in Oct. 2008 to pursue this concept

  • Some consultations with individual projects (response generally positive)

  • ETP Conference 2009 as successful pilot test

  • Collection of full set of project summaries, update of project database at

  • Dissemination service concept developed in more detail throughout 2009

  • Meeting with project coordinators – proposed date Tue 15th Dec. 2009 in Brussels
