The materials can be plastics, textiles or composites.

Investment needs will be evaluated and prioritized through industrial collaboration and co-creation starting with the first workshop on 23.3.2023 at 14:00-16:00. The event will be organized through Microsoft Teams. You are warmly welcome to join the workshop and discuss about your views, ideas and needs.
