The „Sustainable Textile School“ in Chemnitz is launching the “Textile University 4.0” in cooperation with TU Chemnitz (Chemnitz University of Technology) from September 18 to 20.

In line with the mantra “knowledge is power”, it is thus vital to provide both young and professional experts in the textile industry with high-quality practical knowledge that is geared towards digitalization and globalization and always corresponds to the latest technology. This is exactly what the “Sustainable Textile School” offers, taking place for the first time from September 18 to 20 at TU Chemnitz. A new type of project called “Online Textile University 4.0” will also be launched for the first time.  Read More
