The objective of the project is to support, connect and empower 25 transnational partnerships to work collaboratively for the creation of sustainability solutions for the fashion industry. Interested partnerships will form pilot project ideas in response to the S4Fashion Call for Proposals.

The 25 successful pilot projects will benefit from a bespoke programme including mentoring, networking opportunities and financial support. Beyond the pilot projects, a much larger number of organizations will be supported through a parallel programme of workshops and training activities building a system of transnational sustainable fashion laboratories for the testing and measurement of new methodologies.
