The E-Textiles Network was founded in August 2018 to accelerate the development and adoption of e-textiles technology by facilitating focused research activities and disseminating results.
The Network will bring members together to;
- Identify the application challenges in key application sectors.
- Define research challenges.
- Facilitate collaboration to enable industrial pull.
- Identify and attract new research disciplines that can be applied to e-textiles.
- Aid dissemination of research results and broadly promote the technology.
The Network will hold three themed workshops and annual conferences, which will be open to members, as well as publishing monthly newsletters and case studies. Members also have the chance to share resources with the community (Please see the Resources page for more information.)
