The OpTex project aims to co-develop an open innovation platform for textiles made on a paper machine with the company Innventia in Sweden.  The platform will allow a broad range of actors along several value chains (paper, textiles, electronics and sensors) to collaborate.

The OpTex team, Leon Cruickshank and Laura Wareing will use open innovation and knowledge exchange design experience to establish a plan for Innventia’s open innovation platform.
