Innovation For Industry Sustainability

Innovation is vital for textile and garment makers to remain globally competitive and sustainable, and research and development plays a critical role in the innovation process. Research and educational institutions have an important role to play in driving innovation excellence and ensuring the sustainable development of the textile and garment making industry.

The Research and Innovation (R&I) pavilion at ITMA 2019
