Bioeconomy Workshop: Circularity in the textile industry

We all have them, wear them and from time to time, or on a very regular basis, buy new ones. Clothes. Since this is a topic concerning each and everyone of us, we are happy to invite you to the Workshop of the ScanBalt Bioeconomy Working Group, which will take place on the 19th of March 2021 from 10:00 to 12:30.

The workshop will focus on circularity in the textile (health) industry. We have again been able to attract very exciting speakers.

Among other things, we want to shed light on which best practices already exist on the topic of circular (bio)economy in the textile industry and what we can learn from them for the creation of corresponding business models and product development.
