The 3-years journey has started: Fostex partners met and planned
On February 18th and 19th 2019, the official kick-off meeting of Fostex project was held at the textile engineering department facilities of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, located in Terrassa, the historical reference industrial area of the Spanish textile sector. During this first encounter, the partners of the new initiative had the chance to deeply discuss and plan the first six month of project implementation. The Fostex consortium involves a total of 13 organisations, coming from the south of Europe - Spain, Italy, Greece and Romania - and 6 partners located in Morocco and Jordan. After a fruitful consortium meeting, the participants had the opportunity to visit different labs of the hosting partner UPC and to access the research centre of the nearby located cluster organisation AEI Textils, being also part of the partnership.
