      Quick Facts

      Full project name

      Design, Textiles and Sustainable Development (DesTex)

      Duration

      January 2016 – December 2018

      This page gives overall information about the project and the initiative.

      The Design, Textiles and Sustainable Development (DesTex) project and initiative (VGR Dnr RUN 612-0016) aims to strengthen Region Västra Götaland (VGR) as a leading knowledge area. VGR, jointly with University of Borås and University of Skövde, support collaborative research between University of Borås and University of Skövde within the research theme "smart textiles".

      Three areas of research are targeted in the project:

      1. Research within the development of materials, technology, ICT solutions and applications for using smart textiles within health promoting and ergonomic functional clothes (this as an example, whereas results can be applicable in other domains as well).
      2. Research within materials and ICT solutions for soft robotics based on smart textiles.
      3. Research about how smart textiles can be used to support interaction between humans and technology, e.g. human-robot/humanoid interaction.

      Additional objectives of the initiative are to:

      • attract highly educated people to the Västra Götaland region
      • increase innovation and local production
      • establish a long-lasting, stimulating and internationally leading research environment.
