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

27. 11. 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.

In the light of developing innovative learning content in the area of smart textiles, TITERA presented active EU projects that focus on smart textiles where the company is taking part. We presented current work on the development and importance of implementing learning materials on smart textiles on multiple levels to broaden the general and professional knowledge of smart textiles and the smart textile industry.


ADDTEX Video preparation for the MOOC content


TITERA took part in developing materials for the MOOC in the Addtex project where we covered topics related to smart transitions. Materials were developed in three levels, targeting three different target groups from Technicians to Experts. 

In order to maintain professional, coherent and high-standard material delivery, we headed to Terassa to the UPC (Universitat Politecnica Catalunya) where we recorded videos for the upcoming MOOC.
