Conference program 2022

The textile and apparel industry of the future is emission-free, digital and uses sustainable, recyclable raw materials, its supply chains are secure and transparent, and it responds flexibly to market changes through regional on-demand manufacturing. In the present, these megatrends are being worked out at full speed in research, development and design. Results of this work will be showcased at ADD-ITC 2022 in 20 plenary and keynote presentations as well as 36 'contributed talks' and up to 100 poster contributions. In addition, as a highlight of the program, fashion specially put together for the conference will be presented, coordinated by the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences, Department of Textile and Clothing Technology, and the RWTH, Institute of Textile Technology: Textiles for a sustainable world!

ADD-ITC as an on-site event at Eurogress Aachen

After a postponement of the conference in 2020 due to the pandemic and a successful virtual conference in 2021, we will hold the ADD-ITC 2022 on-site at Eurogress Aachen. We are extremely looking forward to the personal exchange with you and the special atmosphere of a face-to-face event.
