Textile Tuesdays

The Textiles Research and Innovation Forum for Industry Collaboration (TRIIFIC) was set up in 2015 to stimulate innovative discussions in the textiles industry.

The forum encourages research and innovation in all aspects of textiles including design, technical, manufacturing and business, and to draw on De Montfort University's knowledge in the areas of medical, sensors and intelligent computing, management, and business practice.

Looking to work with other organisations which can help to deliver innovation, this forum works in partnership with key organisations such as the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) and Leicester City Council because of their particular strategic focus on textiles.

This forum has also cooperated with the Alliance Project, Innovate UK, KTN Ltd, The Institute of Materials, Mining and Minerals, and Medilink EM.

Textile Tuesday's are an opportunity for businesses to network with university colleagues to discuss the latest thinking, research and innovations in the textiles field.

With a different focus each time, Textile Tuesday's will support the progression of funding opportunities and drive partners collaborating to deliver on new and exciting research and innovations.

Following on from the strong support at the Healthcare Textiles event as part of DMU's sponsorship of the Leicester Business Festival 2016, Textile Tuesday's will bridge the gap between academia and industry and drive business growth.
