    • The European Technology Platform Marine Textiles A Textile Flagship for Europe Mauro Scalia EURATEX ZEETEX , 9 July 2013
    • What is the Textile ETP?
    • What is the Textile ETP? Largest Network for Textile R&I in Europe Industry-led initiative since 2004 750+ registered expert members Mission: Ensure long-term competitiveness EU Textile & Clothing Industry through collaborative, market-oriented research & innovation • Key-objectives: – More European textile research-industry cooperation – Better funding opportunities – More collaboration with related sectors – Faster results transfer to the industry – A better image for our sector
    • What is the Textile ETP? Industry-led initiative launched in 2004 Largest Network for Textile R&I in Europe 750+ registered expert members • Mission: Ensure long-term competitiveness EU Textile & Clothing Industry through collaborative, maket-oriented research & innovation • Key-objectives: – More European textile research-industry cooperation – Better funding opportunities – More collaboration with related sectors – Faster results transfer to the industry – A better image for our sector
    • • Full members: • Associated members - European T&C research/technology/education/consulting organisations not members of Euratex, Textranet or AUTEX - European companies from textile/clothing & related industry sectors - European organisations from related research domains • Corresponding members - Europe-based organisations or individual experts with interest in textile research or innovation Membership Structure
    •  Networking o Finding knowledge or technology providers and potential collaboration partners at European level o Get direct access to EU research policy makers and programme managers o Present own pre-commercial developments to a European audience  Information Services o Timely and customised information and individual advice on EU research funding opportunities o Latest research and technology developments incl. results of EU research projects o General news on textile research, new projects, events… from across Europe The ETP essentially offers…
    • Textile Flagships for Europe • What is a Textile Flagship? – innovative textile material/technology + market combination – Addresses a concrete significant or highly ambitious societal challenge/problem -> linked HORIZON 2020 – Has the potential to radically change the way the challenge/problem is tackled today – Offers attractive market growth for EU T/C companies – Can be effectively driven by EU textile industry & research players 7 Flagships set up
    • Progress of the Flagships 5. Implement 1st actions through HORIZON2020 & other programs To start in late 2013/early 2014 4. Reach out to related sectors & EU networks/initiatives Ideas and drive come from us, partners are needed to implement October Conference 3. Draw up action plans for each Flagship Based on expert knowledge & surveys Work started, deadline Sept. 2013 2. Identify and agree on key challenges and priorities Launch of surveys in 5 Flagships Surveys completed and analysed 1. Get together the best industry, technology & research experts 35 – 75 experts per Flagship so far More industry expertise is needed!
    • 7 Pilot Flagships (TFE) TFE5 - Innovative technical textiles for various marine applications and coastal protection Objectives: Establish more textile material use in marine markets (shipping, energy, aquaculture Identify most promising applications, involve maritime sector, Build consortia and look for funding (development + demo) Network: 36 registered experts
    • • Key facts: – Growing expert group: 36 members research & industry, – 3 meetings since Oct. 2012, – Expert survey to identify industry growth and research/technology priorities – Dialogue with EU Stakeholders: -Blue Growth and related -Waterborne TP www.waterborne-tp.org • Key topics: – Wave energy systems, Lightweight component – Tidal energy systems, desalination (filters, membrane) – Protections
    •  Top speakers talking about key market and technology trends  Info on EU funding opportunities for 2014- 2020  Networking with companies & technology experts from across Europe  Registrations start in July (early bird till 20/9)
    • How to realise the textile innovation potential in marine & coastal applications? • Bringing scientific/technological expertise, industry capacities and end users together: – at regional/national level: ZEETEX, Navaltex – at European level: Marine Textiles flagship • Realising collaborative research and demonstration projects in HORIZON 2020 ETP Flagship & ZEETEX
    • Example: ZEETEX - an interregional marine- maritime-textile cluster Interreg project: Flanders and French regions of Nord-Pas de Calais and Somme • Combines players from marine/maritime and textile sector • Goals: – to explore possibilities and to facilitate developments of innovative textile products for marine/maritime applications – to create a platform where the companies can meet in a structured way and find opportunities ETP Flagship & ZEETEX
    • Example: NAVALTEX - Italian cluster for textile innovation in naval applications • NAVALTEX brings together two sectors of excellence of Made- in-Italy: – Interior textiles sector – Naval and yachting sector • Goal: – Match and capitalise leading technologies from the demand and offer sides with the aim of launching cooperative R&D projects – Moderated working groups were organised dedicated to identifying needs and priorities • More than 30 companies involved in the matchmaking ETP Flagship & ZEETEX
    • Conclusions • Several “contact points” between Blue growth and textile sector: – Innovative textile solutions can enable solutions for key needs/bottlenecks in marine and coastal sectors – Marine and coastal sectors can offer interesting growth potential for EU technical textile companies Collaboration for larger impact, faster progres • From textile sector, Flagship’s special interest & cooperation in: – Contribution to (renewable) offshore energy infrastructure – Structural parts based on textile reinforced composites – Protection means (personal, coastal regions)
