Thematic task force/working group in EU
Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials & new production technologies
Fibre and textile-based materials and products have always played a vital role in human life and there is no reason to believe that their importance will diminish in the 21st century. With a growing world population and a rapid increase in textile consumption in developing countries,a whole range of new application areas for textiles and constantly rising user requirements (in terms of functionality, variety, precision,performance,reliability,user and environmental friendliness) is set to rise.
