Second Innovation Forum

The textile and clothing industry has undergone dramatic structural change in recent decades. Nevertheless, the entire textile chain is still present in the region and with the intensive use of the circular economy the textile sector can take over the innovation leadership in the euregio rhine-meuse-north.

We organize the second Innovation Forum “Rethinking the textile industry – shaping the future!” to strengthen cross-border knowledge flows and hence innovation in the euregio rhine-meuse-north.
