The 2017 Call for Associate Enterprises is now closed. Submitted applications are currently in the evaluation process. The outcomes will be published here end May.
We are looking for businesses and enterprises, large and small – even individuals may apply – in any way connected with design, production, manufacturing and distribution in the Textiles and Clothing (T&C) sector, who are interested in becoming part of the TCBL business innovation ecosystem.
You and your company can become one of the prominent members of a growing global community open to anyone interested in innovating business systems to build a more inclusive, and sustainable production ecosystem in Europe.
To apply, first register as a candidate: the deadline for registration is May 5th, 2017. You will then be provided with a registration number by one of the TCBL project partners, which you can use to complete the on-line application form. The deadline to submit your full application form is midnight of May 12th, 2017.
A structured evaluation process (see below) will then select the people and businesses who can make the best contribution to the TCBL innovation ecosystem, to become part of the growing community of TCBL Associate Enterprises (78 selected in the first 2016 Call).
You can register in one of two ways:
- If you are not a member of the TCBL community, sign up by clicking here and make sure you tick the box marked "I want to apply to the 2017 Call" from the drop-down menu.
- If you are already a member, you can edit your profile by clicking here where you can also select the option "I want to apply to the 2017 Call" from the drop-down menu.
