The Watify initiative is an awareness-raising campaign, funded by the European Commission, to stimulate the technological transformation of Europe’s industry. Watify is organising a matchmaking event on Digitisation in Fashion, in the context of R2B - Research to Business 2017 and its Innovation&Match brokerage event.
The Power Point presentations of the Plenary Session of Digitisation in Fashion, 09 June 2017, Bologna, can be found here:
The objective of the matchmaking event is to facilitate inter-regional / cross-border cooperation between regional public and private sector actors in the development of joint initiatives /partnerships or joint demonstration projects in Digisation in fashion – matching S3 priorities and exploiting identified synergies and complementary resources and strengths. Inter-regional or cross-border cooperation can help to exploit complementarities/synergies (i.e. different value chain positions, technologies, etc.), pool resources and infrastructures across Europe, address non-technological issues (e.g. standards) and enlarge the potential user-base.The European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing (ETP Fibres Textile Clothing) aims at ensuring the long-term competitiveness of the European Textile and Clothing industry and to reinforce the position of Europe as a leading global player in the development and manufacturing of fibres, textiles, textile-based products and apparel. ETP Fibres Textile Clothing joined forces with Watify in the organization of a one-day matchmaking event on Digitisation in Fashion.
