Summary and objectives

SmartX is going to boost smart textiles innovation in Europe with a specific focus on developing a full cross-sectoral smart textiles manufacturing value chain in Europe to help drive promising prototypes faster to market.

During the 3-years project we will launch 3 calls for funding. We expect to support up to 40 individual projects with a total funding of 2.4 million Euros. In addition to direct lump-sum funding SME’s will receive free coaching by project experts on how to overcome the main obstacles for commercialization of their smart textiles innovation. We plan to launch the first call in November 2019.

A series of regional cluster workshops will take place across the participating clusters in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Sweden in the autumn of 2019. SME’s and start-ups from all parts of the smart textiles value chain such as materials, IoT hard & software, manufacturing technologies and end markets in protection, sports, health and industry are invited to learn more about the SmartX funding and coaching support opportunities.
