Textile now encompasses far more than just fabrics and clothing. It is used in everything from reinforcement material in composites and soundproof walls to medical applications.
Science Park Borås is contributing to the continued development of the Smart Textiles platform for textile innovations, and serves as a generic platform for innovation that can be applied within other areas. Quality and materials are improving all the time, and new applications are being identified, with particular help from Smart Textiles. The aim is to strengthen the region’s role as a national test area and a sustainable textiles pilot.
