About MDTex

By pooling their networks and skills, the partners of the MDTex project aim to stimulate a decompartmentalisation of the health and textile sectors in order to associate cross-fertilisation and technologies necessary for product development. This network encourages the emergence of health textile projects and products, by offering their bearers the infrastructures to meet, complete consortiums, collaborate and create new opportunities.

These infrastructures essentially concern the setting of an open-innovation framework within which all the players detect the appropriate expertise and calls for projects. Since 1 April 2017, the MDTex network has been acting as an innovation facilitator and accelerator of technology transfer to industry.


In order to discover the results of the MDTex project, we invite you to join us on a virtual stage during the next edition of MedFIT, on Thursday 09 December!
