Biotextiles: Bioeconomy meets textiles
Can we connect two disparate fields, that of bioeconomy with the circular textile industry? Both will be participating in a conference in Iasi, Romania called "Clusters meet Regions". We've united them in a roundtable discussion to identify opportunities for collaboration to create biobased textiles on a local level.
