For many years now, we have been managing the Thuringia SmartTex network and organising workshops, symposiums, business trips and trade fairs. In doing so, we discovered that there is no overview of the services that all of the different companies in the Smart Textiles sector offer. This makes it tedious for product developers and producers to search for Smart Textiles expertise. We want to change that.

WHO does WHAT on the path to series production?

Our network already pools a lot of know-how that spans numerous sectors, and we want to make it available. We are consciously open to ALL suppliers who offer services in the field of smart textile-based products – both domestically and internationally.

This allows us to develop a service catalogue for smart textiles, and interested parties get a quick overview of the service providers and smart solutions. For example:

  • Who can support me in the production of fibres/surfaces with certain properties?
  • Which company can embroider, knit or weave components/sensors/actuators?
  • Who develops the appropriate software for wearcontrol?
  • What possibilities exist for integrating washable electronic components into the textile?
  • And much more.

We bring innovators and doers, researchers, product developers and manufacturers together.

With this interdisciplinary online platform, you can get in direct contact with potential partners.
