ADDTEX gathering in Athens

30-31. 1. 2024

ADDTEX project partners met again in Athens on January 30th and 31st, 2024.

The meeting started with the presentation of Work Package 3 activities and results by IDEAM

The Smart, Digital and Green Skills Academy consisting of curricula, training modules and educational resources connected to innovation in advanced textile materials and focusing on green, smart and digital transitions will be officially launched at the beginning of March 2024. Enrolment in the courses is open to textile engineers and professionals, technicians and graduates and managers and mentors. 

The meeting continued with TITERA presentations of the summer school, which will be organised in Prato during the first week of July 2024 and will be addressed to university students of  PIN, UB, UPC and TUS 

The summer school will involve students in developing solutions and prototypes to solve challenges connected to the green, smart and digital transitions. Lectures, group work, company visits, and prototyping sessions will be at the core of the programme.

The day ended with an overview of the state of the art of the different transversal activities: communication and dissemination, presented by CIAPE; and quality, presented by Cre.Thi.Dev., and management aspects presented by AEI Textils.

The second day started with an overview of WP5 which promotes collaboration between academics and industry through the establishment of HUBS inside clusters and the organisations of a Hackathon which will involve students and companies. A first idea was shared by CITEVE

The AddTex project is advancing successfully and the programme for the next months will be full of activities both for project partners and beneficiaries.

Hacktex consortium launches the Bootcamp, an intensive training course for university students!

27. 11. 2023

In a week from 13. 11 - 17. 11. 2023, the Hacktex project organised, in Borås, Sweden, an intensive training course named Hacktex Bootcamp.  The course gathered students from the 4 participating universities: Gheorghe Asachi Technical University from Romania, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya from Spain, the University of West Attica from Greece and the hosting partner, the University of Boras.

Before the intensive course, all students had access to the virtual training materials on smart textiles (MOOC) and the virtual guide on entrepreneurship focusing on smart textiles.

The program, developed previously by the Hacktex consortium, counted with several dynamic activities and challenges which mixed students from all universities. The students were divided into teams and tasked with conceptualizing smart textile products, considering their raw materials and specific technologies, as well as issues regarding product sustainability. They also identified the specifics of the main steps to develop a business model for their respective products. The ideas generated by the teams were presented and discussed. 

Other activities included a visit to a textile company in Borås, participation in the Borås Textile Days event and a visit to the textile museum at the University.

The multicultural experience of interacting with students, and the academic challenges were met with creativity, based on the knowledge from the lessons in the MOOC and the virtual guide on entrepreneurship and the possibility to attract young specialists toward the field of smart textiles represent the real gain of the HACKTEX Bootcamp.
