Textile and fashion is one of the areas where University of Borås carries a national responsibility. The area focuses on subjects such as textile material technology and textile management. This research area is mainly developed through the investment in Smart Textiles and F3 - Fashion, Function, Futures.
The strategic research idea behind Smart Textiles is to develop the program into a driving and gathering force between business-led development projects and experimental research at the University of Borås. The investment in F3 is a way to strengthen research in textile management and its applications in and development of the textile and fashion sector, through the value chain from idea to customer.
In connection to this, The Swedish School of Textiles has an overall strategy to strengthen the three areas of design, technology and management.
