Acronym: ENTeR

Framework Program: Interreg Central Europe | Duration: 01.07.2017 – 30.06.2020

Aim of the project: ENTeR focuses on waste reduction to prevent depletion of non-renewable resources in the textile industry. It will strengthen the innovation capacity of textile companies in central Europe, improve sustainable links among industrial textile areas and foster closer cooperation on waste management and circular economy. The project aims to accelerate cooperation between the involved textile territories, promoting a joint offer of innovative services by the main local research centres and business associations - ‘Virtual Centre’. The approach of the project is oriented to the management and optimisation of waste, in a life cycle design (or eco design) perspective. The aim is to demonstrate the benefit of an operational collaborative model amongst research and business partners, based on an online tool and shared skills focused on waste eco design and resource efficiency.
