The European textile sector is facing major challenges to implement the green transition. CLEANTEX aims to develop customised training materials for companies and university students in the textile sector about circular economy and eco-design to boost their innovation potential to thrive sustainable solutions.
In this context, the CLEANTEX project will develop the tools for the upskilling of the textile sector and particularly higher education students, in order to obtain its objectives:
To support the upskilling of the textile industry (students and companies) towards the green transition favouring the uptake of skills in sustainability, circular economy and eco-design.
To foster innovative training methodologies based on multidisciplinary hands-on activities.
To strengthen knowledge, skills and competences using virtual learning methodologies and tools.
To promote the uptake of good practices towards a more sustainable textile industry.
To strengthen collaboration among universities, technological centres and the textile industry.
CLEANTEX will generate an impact to the different target groups including students of HEIs (both design and textile), textiles’ companies and their managers as well as other stakeholders from the textile ecosystem, who will benefit from the outputs generated during the project lifetime.
