NEST - Nordic CoE for Smart Textiles and Wearable Technology
Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Innovation2005 (English)Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The traditional textile and clothing industry is loosing its jobs and capacity in the Nordic countries as well as in the whole EU. The industry needs more value added products compared to the low cost imports that are flooding the market. Intelligent textiles and wearable technology is a new and exciting research and development area that cross-scientifically implants new properties into the traditional textile products, such as monitoring biosignals through textile embedded sensors, automatic thermal regulation based on phase change or shape memory materials, transfer of signals by means of fibre optics, etc.
