Addtex - Hackathons

May 5, 2024

From the 15th to the 17th of May 2024, AddTex Project partners have organized Hackathons for students coming from different universities (University of Boras, UPC, PIN and TUS) who are taking part in the AddTex Project consortia. 

This motivating and challenging activity worked as a link to connect students from different universities with real-life industry challenges, promoting innovation in digitalisation, design and sustainability.  

Hackathons were done in a collaborative effort with all project partners, bringing together professors, students, cluster managers and experts from across Europe. In two days, university students actively worked on finding the best solutions to real-life challenges proposed by various textile companies. Challenges were provided and presented by companies who are cluster members of AddTex project partners (PTC/CITEVE, CLUTEX, IVGT and AEI Tèxtils). 

Proposed challenges from the companies focused on the AddTex project's main topics: sustainability, digitalization processes and smart and advanced materials.

Challenges set for students were highly challenging given the amount of time in which students had to bring the solution from the initial idea to the full presentation. 

  • Challenge no. 1: Creation of a 100% recyclable paper luxury bag
  • Challenge no. 2: Textile accessory with safety features (HI-visibility)
  • Challenge no. 3: Reducing textile waste through new recycling ideas at an awning manufacturer
  • Challenge no. 4: Smart traceability

During the Hackathons, 17 experts were supporting the process online in different time settings, making sure they were available for groups of students working on the challenges. 

Students were able to book a session with experts coming from diverse backgrounds, from digital marketing experts to business model developers, smart textile experts, professors, researchers, technicians, designers, and R&D engineers. Online experts provided support and brainstorming and helped navigate student's idea development in the most feasible way possible. 

Companies proposing those challenges took part in the jury setting of Hackathons and were able to evaluate and comment on proposed ideas. The winning groups of students will be given the opportunity to develop their idea along with the company thanks to a virtual internship. Virtual internships will give young individuals the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the working processes of the hosting companies. The participating companies, as well, will be given the opportunity to participate in a Masterclass according to their needs.

Each group of students showed their enthusiasm, presenting innovative approaches, and developing cutting-edge solutions within the challenges of the industry.

Hacktex consortium launches the Bootcamp, an intensive training course for university students!

November 27,  2023

In a week from 13. 11 - 17. 11. 2023, the Hacktex project organised, in Borås, Sweden, an intensive training course named Hacktex Bootcamp.  The course gathered students from the 4 participating universities: Gheorghe Asachi Technical University from Romania, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya from Spain, the University of West Attica from Greece and the hosting partner, the University of Boras.

Before the intensive course, all students had access to the virtual training materials on smart textiles (MOOC) and the virtual guide on entrepreneurship focusing on smart textiles.

The program, developed previously by the Hacktex consortium, counted with several dynamic activities and challenges which mixed students from all universities. The students were divided into teams and tasked with conceptualizing smart textile products, considering their raw materials and specific technologies, as well as issues regarding product sustainability. They also identified the specifics of the main steps to develop a business model for their respective products. The ideas generated by the teams were presented and discussed. 

Other activities included a visit to a textile company in Borås, participation in the Borås Textile Days event and a visit to the textile museum at the University.

The multicultural experience of interacting with students, and the academic challenges were met with creativity, based on the knowledge from the lessons in the MOOC and the virtual guide on entrepreneurship and the possibility to attract young specialists toward the field of smart textiles represent the real gain of the HACKTEX Bootcamp.

Check out the video to figure it out!
