The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) are currently working on an initiative for manufacturing textiles and clothing in Europe 2025.

The EU are keen to generate knowledge on advanced manufacturing technologies (AMT) which could become significant in the EU.

The pilot study focused on the textiles and clothing sector in which the JRC teamed up with EURATEX to understand:

  • Role of the sector
  • Profile of the industry
  • Technology adoption
  • Re-shoring potential
  • Representation

The 1st workshop was held on 30th June – 1st July 2015 and was the first of a series of two workshop which looks to identify and understand the key drivers for change within this sector and create a long-term vision for the future.

The second workshop will be held on 6-7th October 2015, Brussels Belgium and will look to identify ideas and solutions which will be publicised in a report in December 2015/early 2016.

The event will be attended by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Thomas Bechtold.
