The Institute has launched the “AITEX Scientific Campus” to support and encourage young people to study scientific and technical qualifications with applications in the textile industry.
Applications for new functionalisation and environmental protection technologies in rug manufacturing
The core goal of ECO&TECNO CARPET II is to create functional rugs and carpets which use materials and processes to enhance the recyclability of the product and to undertake research into the revalorisation of the waste created at each stage of manufacture to lengthen its lifecycle and create an added-value factor.
AITEX defines its research projects in line with the European Strategic Agenda for Innovation and Research in the Textile and Clothing Industry, Horizon 2025.
AITEX has extended its scope as a Notified Body to cover the evaluation of different filtration and respiratory equipment. To meet these wider needs, the Institute has recently installed a range of testing equipment to comply with the various standards necessary to certify a whole array of protective equipment.
