Welcome to E-Textiles Network

The E-Textiles Network is an EPSRC funded activity to bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry interested in adding electronic functionality to textiles and their related products. E-textiles can include a range of functionality such as sensing, signal processing, lighting, wireless data transmission and actuation. It has the potential to revolutionise the textiles industry, offering a new class of products across a range of application including medical, performance sports, automotive and fashion.

The primary objective of the network is to act as a focal point for the community and organise a series of workshops and events that will identify research challenges, showcase the latest innovations and research findings, catalyse collaborations and support young researchers through travel grants. Membership of the network is free and will be required to participate in workshops, access our services as well as providing preferential rates for open events organised by the network.
