On July 7th AITEX received the IMPULSO 2022 Award for the “Most Collaborating Entity in R&D” in the Award’s 11th year, promoted by the University of Alicante through the Vice-rectorate for Scientific Transfer, Innovation and Dissemination and the Alicante Science Park (PCA). The event was held in the auditorium of the University of Alicante and was chaired by the rector of the University of Alicante, Amparo Navarro.
The recognition given to AITEX is part of the active relationship it has maintained with the University of Alicante for more than 25 years in areas related to the textile industry. Our collaboration is not only in the most traditional sectors, but also the in the most advanced, such as applications in home automation, high-performance sports equipment, development of new high-performance materials, textiles for health and dermo-pharmaceutical use and 3D printing techniques. During this fruitful cooperation, nearly 90 collaborative projects were signed, developing joint research projects at regional, national and European level.
León Grau, President of AITEX, collected the award from Amparo Navarro, Rector of the University of Alicante and Josefina Bueno, Councillor for Innovation, Universities, Science and Digital Society, at a gala where ten innovative and sustainable business initiatives arising from the university community were recognised, in addition to three business awards, including AITEX.
