For 2024 we frame our call for papers under four pillars:

Circular Solutions / Recycling
Strong pillar where we intent to collaborate with Innovators/ start up companies, additional we want to include for textiles new and upcoming sorting- and separation technologies.

Fiber innovations
Is our core focus - here we include all applications like apparel, home, automotive, technical textiles,etc.
Non woven itself shows also high potentials for innovation and will be part of this group.
We also invite natural fibers like cotton and wool and we include Raw materials for the fiber production: e.g. Pulp and upstream materials for synthetic fibers.

Energy Solutions
As energy is getting very significant for the whole value chain in terms of costs and sustainably we intent to build here a strong, innovative focus.

Emerging Tec
Topics around Digitalization, AI, Transparency and traceability will get high influence in the value chain therefore we plan to open also here new pillar of innovation exchange.
