At the end of the nineteenth century the first attempts of textile chemists and colorists to join and work hand in hand in the fast growing textile industry of northeast Bohemia region began. These efforts were crowned with the foundation of the first Continental Textile Chemists and Colorists Society in 1908. In the same area production of dyestuffs has started and several small producers of textile auxiliary agents supported the tremendous development of the textile manufacturing.

The textile chemistry and coloration nowadays are becoming a new dimension – not only as the key to the fashion and comfort but also as a tool of the textile industry sustainability and last but not least as an extension of the new textile materials and fabrics into the new technical applications. Environmentally friendly, cost effective and energy efficient flexible technologies joining the tradition of chemistry with high-technologies, and boosted by new emerging disciplines, such as, to name a few biotech and nanotech, need to be communicated. Due to the significance of modern textile sector the forthcoming congress has obtained patronage of the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic.

Let´s come and acquaint ourselves with these trends, let´s unite with the business partners and friends from our branch and enjoy the hospitality of Pardubice region, the center of chemistry, horse racing and gingerbread. A kind invitation of the modern campus of the Pardubice University shall provide us with a good opportunity to engage youth to follow the tradition and to get together with the industrial representatives – breathing in the most recent innovation impulses of researchers. Let´s make the 24th International IFATCC Congress a three-day living space for multidisciplinary professional communication and multinational partnering event.
