UTOP Textile Project (KA2)

The UTOP Textile project (KA2) was an innovation project involving 3 higher education institutions:

  • HEFF, design school, in Belgium (project leader)
  • ESNE, design school, in Spain
  • ITECH Lyon, textile engineering school, in France

It was a 3-year project that brought together, twice a year, 5 students from each institution with support from CREACTION. The aim was to initiate the conception of innovative products based on technologies that may be derived from aerospace technologies. Students worked together twice a year in workshops in each of the partner countries.

  • 1st year (2019-2020): 5 projects in the creation phase proposed by the students (4 were selected)
  • 2nd year (2020-2021): 5 projects in the development phase, meeting a set of specifications
  • 3rd year (2021-2022): 3 to 5 projects in the prototyping phase

Selected projects:

  1. The drinkable Jacket or Tent
  2. Air filter Mask
  3. Textile responding to sound stimuli
  4. Tree from desire 2.0 (a biodegradable Tree tutor)
  5. A biomimetical material
