This change will increasingly be reflected in the so-called megatrends according to the Zukunftsinstitut (future institute): such as mobility, urbanization, new work and individualization. Technical textiles can provide answers to many of these questions. The advantage of textiles is that they are versatile and offer a lot of variations: fiber material, yarn properties, coating, surface design and functionalization can be combined almost endlessly. In order to be able to provide valid answers to the questions of the future, it is necessary to consider the topics in an interdisciplinary and sustainable manner. A special focus must be placed on the use of biologically based materials and the design of recyclable products. The applications to be addressed range from the design of new hybrid education and training concepts to smart applications in veterinary medicine and textile components in fuel cell technology. Texulting GmbH has the necessary experience and a global network to support companies from the entire textile chain and users in the implementation of innovative projects.
