Functional Textiles



Development of a new generation of eco-designed and automated circular knitting machines. The EcoTex project focuses on reducing the environmental impact in the production of circular knitting machines, implementing a sustainable design and optimizing the use of materials. EcoTex improves the ergonomics of the operator with a solution that contemplates the [...]



Development, testing and validation of good practices in Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). The TEACH4SD project mobilizes industry, research and innovation capacities and links them in new and innovative ways to the education and training sector. TEACH4SD fully integrates and expands certified approaches to ESD in vocational education and training (VET) [...]



Study of advanced robotics solutions for the textile sector. The FASHIONAUT project aims to digitise and robotise potential manufacturing processes in the textile industry, opening the door to new automation solutions using the latest market innovations. The main innovations contributed by the project consist of the detection of materials through artificial [...]



Design and development of a new generation of circular knitting machines with total and predictive quality control. The PRECATEX project implements an innovative total and predictive quality control system with the objective to allow the productivity of quality textiles and minimises defective production. This new system is achieved by using new [...]



Systemic and holistic approach towards the creation of a European Union market for locally-produced circular textiles and clothing made from bio-based waste. The HEREWEAR project has the objective to promote new materials solutions on the latest bio-based polyesters and cellulose developments. The Functional Textiles Unit of Eurecat participates in the project [...]

PECT Mataró Maresme


The Territorial Competitiveness Specialization Project (PECT in its acronym in Spanish) is the materialization of multiple strategies in Mataró city and Maresme region for the transformation of the territory through the construction of an intelligent, sustainable and inclusive economic growth model. The PECT of Mataró Maresme is aligned with two priority [...]



Development of fibre-based smart materials along with an integrated platform with the aim to manufacture new products with multi-sectoral applications in consumer electronics and lighting, among others. The project 1D-NEON explores ground breaking concepts that will provide cutting edge advances in the design, sustainable manufacturing, testing and integration of novel functionalized [...]



The expansion of tropical diseases such as dengue, malaria, and more recently, Zika, is becoming a continuous growing global problem according to all the world health associations and departments. One of the main vectors in the transmission of these diseases on a worldwide scale are mosquito bites. The primary aim of [...]



The objective of NANOPATEX is the development of functional textiles aimed at thermal sensorisation and/or controlled release of substances into the skin for health and physical well-being purposes, based on the use of synthetic micro/nano-structured PA fibres through polymeric particles which contain the active ingredients and components. Consortium formed by: Nurel and [...]
