From November 23rd to December 8th 2020, T&G Textech organized a series of webinars dedicated to technical textiles.

T&G TEXTECH Events is organized within the framework of the project “German-Tunisian Partnership for capacity building in Technical textiles” financed by DAAD, German Academic Exchange Service. The aim of this project is the capacity building on the technical textile expertise of textile engineers in order to improve the employability in Tunisian textile and clothing industry. This is done through the transfer of knowledge from Institute for textile Machinery and High Performance Materials Technology (ITM) of TU Dresden, Germany to National Engineering School of Monastir (ENIM) of Monastir University, Tunisia by establishing academic contacts between the ENIM and ITM.

On November 27th, Dr. Ariadna Detrell, Cluster Manager of AEI Tèxtils, presented CONTEXT as action chair within the webinar dedicated to e-textiles & smart materials. The Action MC Observer from Morocco, Prof. Omar Cherkaoui, participated at the same session as keynote speaker, with the conference: Flexible smart textile with excellent energy harvesting toward a novel class of self-powered sensors/actuators.
