tExtended is a member of ECOSYSTEX, the European Community of Practice for a Sustainable Textile Ecosystem, has been formally launched in early 2023, with a mission to accelerate collaboration in the textile sustainability and circularity field.
As a joint initiative of the European Commission’s Research Executive Agency (REA), the European Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA) and the Circular-Biobased Europe Joint Undertaking, and facilitated by the Textile ETP, this new network of textile circularity projects aims to create a long-term community of practice, ensuring collaboration across project consortia and lasting beyond the individual projects’ durations.
The first ECOSYSTEX conference will take place in Barcelona, Spain, on 18-20 October, and it will bridge the gap between EU-backed textile research and the thriving sustainable textile industry. The conference will bring together a diverse community of researchers, industry leaders, and policymakers who are committed to driving innovation and sustainability in the textile sector.
