Due to the cancellation of the activities planned in the second quarter of the year and of the difficulty to organize face-to-face meetings in the coming months, the leaders of the different groups decided to hold their next meeting virtually. The meetings have taken place between end of June and beginning of July.

The Working Groups bring together European and international experts in the field of textile research and related or complementary areas, as well as professionals from the industrial field. Its objective is to bring together the different research lines that are being carried out in Europe and their alignment with the manufacturing sector and the market, as well as defining joint lines of work.

In total, more than 100 people have participated at the meetings.
