The Textile Centre of Excellence has a reputation in the UK
As emphasized in the Mission Statement
Following a series of feasibility studies, the Textile Innovation Programme, which is being run through the Textile Centre of Excellence, will significantly increase the region's capacity to operate in the Advanced Materials sector. This program is being run through the Textile Centre of Excellence.
It is estimated that the value of the market for technical textiles, which includes a wide variety of industries such as the medical industry, engineering, construction, automotive industry, and aerospace industry, has grown to £30 billion. Companies that are able to create lighter, stronger components, as well as materials that can sense and adjust to their environment, are opening themselves up to major opportunities as a result of new technologies, which are coinciding with an increase in environmental concerns.
The new Boeing 787, which will be constructed of woven carbon fiber and laminates, is currently in the process of being developed. According to the findings of the feasibility studies conducted by the Textile Innovation Programme (TIP), woven aircraft components have the potential to outperform those made of titanium and aluminum. Furthermore, the potential market opportunity for these robust yet lightweight components is enormous.
Combating counterfeiting is yet another domain where the Programme is anticipated to have an immediate impact. The high quality textile and fashion markets, along with other important regional sectors like pharmaceuticals, are currently facing a growing crisis where counterfeit products account for up to 10% of sales. This crisis is also affecting other key regional sectors like the pharmaceutical industry.More details
In conjunction with the Textile Center of Excellence, the Textile Innovation Knowledge Platform was designed specifically to make use of the most recent thinking on the next generation of e-Learning and to facilitate knowledge sharing. This was accomplished as an essential component of the Textile Innovation Programme.
