Systex: Driving wheel towards more intelligent textile systems
SYSTEX is a new coordination effort between the different knowledge carriers of industrial, academic and government institutions, research and users in order to pool and evaluate the existing information, generate new interaction between the different players and foster commercialization.
During a consortium meeting in Lille/France, the framework of the database, which went online in February was presented. Up till now more than 560 references to papers in the field of intelligent textiles have already been entered onto the database. This is the first effort to collect all existing information in Europe related to the development and commercialization of smart textiles. Systex specifically addresses the industry, companies operating in the field of smart textiles and their respective suppliers.Further information at: http://www.systex.org (MM)
