  • 18 partners from 11 countries
  • Duration 3 years (start Nov. 2009)
  • Budget €1.5 mln.
  • Kick-off meeting 23-24 Nov. Lille/FR
  • Strong collaboration with ETP

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


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.

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
follow up of htg work
Follow-up of HTG Work


  • Last EHTG meeting 9th Sept.
  • Participation of Universities, Colleges & Institutes
  • Major discussion points:
    • Industry training actions
    • Marie Curie call for ITN projects (people exchange industry-academia)
    • On-line textile training tools
    • Election of new chairman: Prof. C. Carr, Manchester Univ.
  • Next meeting 11th Dec, Brussels
industry training actions
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 actions22
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
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
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 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

Key Points:

  • Working title: “Textile Research & Innovation across Europe”
  • Organised as major showcase of textile-related R&I clusters, networks, initiatives at national/regional level (presentations, exhibits, posters…)
  • Major event for promotion of CrossTexNet (ERA-Net)
  • Policy & strategy session with keynotes from high-level EC speakers
  • Need to complete list of national/regional initiatives & confirm contributions
  • Search for sponsorships
ec funding
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
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 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
