Cluster Technical Textiles Neckar-Alb

Linked – informed – innovative: For bundling regional competences and to stimulate groundbreaking innovations in the field of technical textiles, the Cluster Technical Textiles Neckar-Alb (techtex) was set up in February 2012 by IHK Reutlingen (Reutlingen Chamber of Commerce and Industry). Currently, more than 50 companies, research institutes and initiatives are participating in the cluster activities (status quo: 01/2015)

The main responsibilities of the cluster’s management are linking the stakeholders, providing textile relevant information as well as initiating new research projects including the consulting of grants. The cluster’s management organizes joint booths at international textile trade fairs, practices business development by technology transfer and informs about recent topics in the textile sector and about general regulations, e.g. the EU-Textile-Labeling-Regulation. Workshops on future topics offer a platform for establishing contacts and for the initiation of research projects. Also participants from outside the region Neckar-Alb are very welcome to take part in the cluster.
