EU-TEXTILE2030 and RUTA N have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate cooperation and innovation between Colombian and Europe in advanced textile materials

EU-TEXTILE2030, the European Advanced Textile Materials cluster, was in Colombia last year from July 23rd to 27th in its first business mission coordinated by the Catalan Technical Textiles' cluster, AEI Tèxtils. During the mission, EU-TEXTILE2030 representatives meet with several major stakeholders from the Colombian textile sector including clusters, business associations, research centers, and related government initiatives.

Now, the partnership has signed a memorandum of understanding with one of the major stakeholders visited during the mission, Ruta N.

This MoU will facilitate coordination and support to both European and Colombian advanced textile companies in the uptake of innovation from technological centers.  Ruta N and EU-TEXTILE2030 now define an action plan for the deployment of the different cooperation and coordination activities to benefit the advanced textile sector of Colombia and Europe. Those will be coordinated, from EU-TEXTILE2030 side, by the Catalan cluster of technical textiles, AEI Tèxtils due to its coordination role in the mission to Colombia last summer.
