This is a general discussion forum to share thoughts, insights and concerns, as well as tips and tricks about using the groups and other facilities. Feel free to share any ideas you think the TCBL community as a whole might be interested in.
The recently launched WEAR Sustain project aims to engage wearable technology stakeholders to work more closely with designers and artists across Europe, to shift the development of the EU wearables and e-textiles industries towards a more sustainable and ethical approach.
There are thus many possible synergies between TCBL and WEAR Sustain that we can support in three main ways:
- TCBL Labs can consider joining the WEAR Sustain network as "Creative & Innovation Hubs" to link the two communities
- TCBL community members can apply for one of the Open Calls (first deadline end May), for multi-disciplinary project teams to develop new smart textiles projects.
- TCBL service providers, professionals, and advisors can join the WEAR Sustain community of experts.
