Nextextilegeneration: four European projects united
The four projects funded under the COSME programme, SmallButPerfect, Fashion for Change, S4Fashion and CirCoAX by CircularInnoBooster, promote sustainable, circular and regenerative entrepreneurship. Currently, they implement acceleration programmes to mentor, finance and give visibility to the most disruptive ideas in fashion and textiles. Their alliance and synergies have led them to cooperate on a larger scale, promoting the Nextextilegeneration platform, organising events within the framework of the EU Green Week and the Circular Economy Forum, and launching these European awards.
With the launch of the NextextileGeneration Startup Europe Awards 2022, the four projects want to enrich and enhance the visibility of these proposals in the European entrepreneurship ecosystem through the Startup Europe Awards, giving recognition to the most innovative ideas. The four together have a total of 108 potential candidate projects for transnational partnerships within the European Union, working together to shift the economic model from the linear economy to the circular economy.
