Go and See – innovation special

Parik Goswami in the technical textiles lab.

There are amazing things happening in the world of textiles in Kirklees and the surrounding area. Businesses and academics are working on some brilliant new textiles technologies. This event will give you a chance to hear about some of the most exciting innovative ways that textiles are being used at the moment.

Virtual reality technology that allows you to “feel” fabric from thousands of miles away; “Smart” clothing that can monitor your vital signs: these are just a couple of examples of the innovations that are being developed in this area.

The event will feature short presentations from brilliant speakers, with a chance for you to ask them questions. Confirmed speakers include:

Parik Goswami, Director – Technical Textiles Research Centre

Fiona Haran, Editor – World Textile Information Network

Dr Sahar Arshi, School of Design, Leeds University

David Buxton, Roaches International.
