Towards a European wide intelligent textile environment: building, linking and bonding

Objective

Textile and Clothing Industry, although belonging to the traditional called sectors, with its vast number of SMEs that form a wide web all over Europe, remains an important substructure where innovation can grow, flourish and give quantifiable results. The most effective way to achieve this is by sensitising the Human capital of companies towards adopting innovation and creating the appropriate environment. The ITE project, combining the most recent outcomes in the field of innovation research and the exper ience of the BENTEX project, involves 22 partners (of which 13 already collaborated successfully) and aims at: ? The creation of bridges with the BENTEX project by further disseminating and implementing technology benchmarking practices and results and by exploiting its "products" and "achievements", i.e. databases, benchmarking self-audit tool, web platform, etc to enforce research cooperations. ? The establishment of a trans-sectoral network of experts to transfer successful paradigms form other sectors a nd activities ? The in depth analysis of the role of human factor in the adoption of innovation within SMEs, as a response to changes and undertaking new challenges (such as for example their participation in new research projects), ? The extraction of bes t practices in human resources deployment within the top performing European textile companies -derived from the BENTEX project- and their dissemination to a wide audience of SMEs ? The wide and intense dissemination of Community initiatives and FP6 to the textile SMEs in old EU member states (Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany), new EU members (Lithuania, Latvia, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Malta, Slovakia and Cyprus) and candidate countries (Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey), ? The coaching of compa nies towards FP6 research projects and particularly the new instruments adopted
