Interactive Session on the latest innovations in the Textile Industry – reg

This is to inform you that CITI as part of the Project Appraisal & Monitoring Committee (PAMC) of the Office of Textile Commissioner has been continuously monitoring the various Research & Development (R&D) projects in this area for the last few years and has compiled a list of relevant and potential innovations.

CITI plans to hold an interactive session between the industry, as potential users of these technologies along with the Innovators/Research Organizations on a selected few latest innovations. The objective is to give more relevant information to the industry on these innovations and seek your interest in using these for product development as also facilitating communication of good adoptable innovation.

Please find enclosed a list of some such technologies. We request you to indicate your area of interest among these or any other technology that you are looking forward to get more details.
