The fashion, textiles and technology related sector (FTT) is buoyant, innovative and multidisciplinary, informing many adjacent sectors in the wider industry. Quite literally, spanning agriculture to advertising.
This funding call is looking to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the development of the next generation of products, services and experiences in the fashion, textiles and technology sectors – with sustainable innovation at their core.
SMEs, with or without associated industry partners, that are already working at the developmental stages of testing an innovative product, service or concept prototype are eligible to apply. R&D projects may also be at an earlier scoping stage (pre-prototyping). In both cases, for the project to be successful, itwould benefit from specialist support across a range of fields that could be provided
by the BFTT partnership, including: new materials design & development; application of less accessible and cutting-edge technologies; novel applications of digital technologies; business model innovation.
We look forward to hearing from FTT companies, and those in the wider STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts andMathematics) fields interested in collaboratingwith the FTT sector- who would like to achieve a step-change in their business trajectory.
