Circular Textiles

Are you a driven student committed to sustainability and innovation? Within this theme, you can make a difference.

In a world where sustainability and responsibility for our planet are increasingly important, circular products are the key to a better future. They are designed with reuse, recycling and making (chemical) processes as efficient as possible.

Circular products reduce our ecological footprint, protect natural resources and offer innovative solutions to business challenges. Within our projects, we have several challenges for which clients from the textile industry need your expertise and creativity.

For example, clients want to extend the life cycle of products by modifying or adding something to the product without losing its material properties, thus minimising waste and also reducing polluting production of new products. This would be a huge leap forward and your ideas could make a difference.

They are also looking for innovative techniques and processes so that different types of textiles can be recycled. Your research and experiments could lead to breakthroughs that pave the way for a closed-loop recycling of textile materials.

Be part of the future of circular products and processes, you have the opportunity to learn from experts in sustainability, collaborate with like-minded students and turn your ideas into concrete solutions. Together, we can make a positive change and work towards a greener future for all of us!
