ART CHERIE

Launch of the ART CHERIE project to exploit the fashion Cultural Heritage for the improvement of EU fashion designers

 

On December 15th, 2016, five project partners will be hosted by EURATEX in Brussels, Belgium, to launch the newly ERASMUS+ KA2 project ART CHERIE (Achieving and Retrieving Creativity through European Fashion Cultural Heritage Inspiration).

The project, coordinated by EURATEX, addresses the issue of apprenticeships delivery in the fashion sector dominated by SME’s and micro enterprises. The objective of ART CHERIE project is to contribute to: the protection and exploitation of the fashion Cultural Heritage; organize and structure it in vocational training courses for the improvement of EU fashion designers (Fashion designers working in T&C Industries and young fashion designers).

The purpose of the developed curricula will be to train EU fashion designers to improve their designs and achieve an increased added value of their garments, by achieving precious knowledge about the past and current state of fashion. Work-based training ICT tools based on fashion cultural heritage is missing from European fashion industry which needs inspiration and learning from a glorious past to add value to its products and boost its international competitiveness. The ART CHERIE platform will respond to design skills and for that scope will concentrate information and digitalize material from Prato Textile Museum as the initial pilot.

TEXAPP

The project, coordinated by EURATEX, addresses the issue of apprenticeships delivery in the fashion sector dominated by SME’s and micro enterprises. The objective of TEXAPP is to foster and strengthen the supply of apprenticeships for SME’s and micro enterprises active in the sector through the close cooperation between Euratex (as the European organization of the T&C national associations) and its partners - members and affiliates.

For fostering the supply of apprenticeships in an integrated way for the T&C sector, what matters above all is a supportive business environment offering practical assistance to SME’s. Through close cooperation, TEXAPP project partners will create and provide a structure and tools oriented towards the T&C sector considering the SME’s needs and obstacles they face in this regard. The sectoral tool package to be developed aims at assisting SME’s in setting up, planning, delivering and ensuring the quality of their apprenticeships, including apprentice assessment.

ECWRTI

New concept for wastewater reuse in the textile industry

 

Textile mills can reduce their water consumption by up to 90 percent using the EColoRO concept, which consists of electrocoagulation followed by membrane filtration, to treat their wastewater without using chemicals and then reuse it. In June 2015 a European consortium led by the Dutch company EColoRO BV in Leeuwarden and the Institute for Sustainable Process Technology (ISPT) in Amersfoort, the Netherlands commenced a 3,5-year project to demonstrate the new technology on site at full industrial scale, first at a textile mill in Belgium and later at a textile mill in Italy.
