Cross-border Medical Textiles Cluster
By joining their networks and competences, the project partners aim to build bridges between the health and textile sectors and to collect in this way the necessary expertise and technologies to develop new products. The cluster will stimulate the development of new projects and medical textile products by offering the necessary facilities to meet, to create consortia, to collaborate and to create new opportunities. In the first place, the structure will form a framework for open innovation where all “stakeholders” can find the appropriate expertise and information on relevant project calls. The cluster will thus operate as a facilitator of innovation and a catalyst of technology transfer to the industry.
Via MDTex we support synergies and collaborations in a crossborder area around six central themes: implants, biological filtration, regenerative medicin, compression bandages, orthotics, monitoring and therapy.
