DESTEX is a project where eight different partners together will create a virtual training program to promote and cultivate innovative industrial design and creativity in advanced textile manufacturing. A book of lectures will be produced and tested in a summer course in Milan. The project will also develop an online platform for hackathons for an open innovation and project-based training of students based on real case studies and challenges from the advanced textiles' manufacturing industry. The project will culminate in a handbook of best-practices containing all project information as well as challenges to be tackled for educators and students of textiles.
