Textile research projects

The Institute for Textile Technology snf ITA Technologietransfer GmbH have formed a partnership to promote fiber-related research.

The Institute for Textile Technology at RWTH Aachen University and research and development service provider ITA Technologietransfer GmbH have formed a partnership to promote fiber-related research.

‘We are establishing our new partnership model where we will even more closely cooperate with our actual and future industrial partners, providing them with the latest technologies and innovations from R&D side,’ said Professor Dr Thomas Gries, Director of ITA. ‘We will initiate networking and workgroup meetings, offer access to ITA´s large machine parks and labs, carry out joint partner projects and commonly organized publicly-funded projects as well as training for partner´s employees and HR opportunities.’

Dr. Christoph Greb, Scientific Director of ITA: “We are very happy to initiate this new partnership model where science, research and industry are working shoulder to shoulder in pre-competitive projects on our future projects along the entire value-chain from the fibre to the final component in order to close a missing gap and form innovative paths forward in various industrial fields.”

The group plans to run a series of industrial projects covering the recycling of composite battery cases and composite pressure vessels, natural fiber composites, biaxial warp-knitted structures and tapes and hybrid yarns.
