SmartX unites eight clusters two Research and Technology Organisations (for specific technological assistance) and three innovation support entities (for professional project initiation, implementation and follow-up): together they will reach out to over 60,000 SMEs all over Europe to build a dedicated community around SmartX.

This extremely large action range will help SmartX boost smart textiles innovation and develop an end-to-end smart textiles manufacturing value chain in Europe, in order to drive promising prototypes faster to market.
Building a strong sustainable community will be the underlying long term objective of the Programme, to foster interaction and collaboration within the European smart textile industry. A series of focused workshops will take place throughout the EU and allow professionals to gain and share advanced knowledge and state-of-the-art technological solutions.
During the 3-year programme 3 calls for funding will help support up to 40 projects with a total budget of €2.4 million.
