Develop new international projects and partnerships for textile sorting and recycling


22. Apr 2024



Join our workshop, which will bring together actors from different regions in the EU and beyond to develop future projects and actions in textile sorting and recycling. We invite innovative SMEs, knowledge institutions, public stakeholders, and experts from different EU regions to identify the main challenges facing the circular economy in the textile industry. Be part of project development, collaboration planning, and building new regional partnerships. Also, gain insight into potential funding opportunities for joint projects.

Which projects can you participate in?

Future projects and joint initiatives can focus on:

  • Digital and innovative solutions for sorting textiles
  • Reuse and recycling of large fractions of similar textiles (e.g., workwear/uniforms from, for example
    hospitals, etc.)
  • Recycling of textiles to be used in new applications (e.g. in the construction industry, automotive
    industry, furniture etc.)
  • Textile to textile recycling

If you want to engage in joint actions and projects within some of these topics, this workshop is for you.


15.00-16.30 CEST

  • Introduction to the International Cleantech Network and the 3R Connect project
  • Cross regional challenges for sorting and recycling of textiles
