Accelerating Smart Textile Entrepreneurship by Innovative Cross-regional, Cross-disciplinary and Cross-cultural Value Chains
OBJECTIVES: The aim of smartX is to support, through the project's core program, new innovation projects that should fill the gaps that currently exist between the development of smart textiles and wearables. This support culminates with the aim of establishing new industrial value chains consisting of textile manufacturers, data processing specialists, technology providers, distributors and end users.
