The Textile Innovation Cluster was awarded with the prestigious Bronze Label of Cluster Excellence by ESCA in 2014 and is the only Italian member of the cluster network Textile2020, funded by the European Commission’s World Class Clusters Announcement: a major project of remarkable interest, composed by 8 European clusters and by 900 members, mostly research centers and companies. POINTEX participates as a founding member since 2012, with the aim of creating synergies and collaborations across Europe. It is the largest textile network in the world, able to offer excellent operational and business outcomes to our Cluster’s members. Due to our participation to this huge innovative partnership, seven applications were submitted for European funding, of which two already funded and two are being evaluated.

The Cluster also takes part in EURATEX (the European Textile Platform) activities, like Brokerage / TEPPIES, Technology Marketplace etc., also supporting textile-related lobbying activities in Europe and promoting innovation. Moreover, our Cluster acts in the role of technical expert in the Flagship Projects committees.

We are members of the European Technology Platform (ETP) for the future of Textile & Clothing and we participate as experts to the technical activities of the Textile Flagships for Europe, as well as to the Technology Marketplace.

Finally, POINTEX is the regional point of reference for the INCOMERA and MANUNET Calls, as well as a partner of the prestigious European projects MIDWOR-LIFE, FLAREX-LIFE and EU-TEXTILE2030 and a guest of important international events and trade shows, such as ITMA and TECHTEXTIL.
