Textile innovations at its best

Saxony has become an important stakeholder in Germany’s lightweight engineering and technical textiles sector. In fact, when it comes to research and development, Saxony is well ahead of the competition. University and non-university research institutions are found along the Dresden-Freiberg-Chemnitz corridor – creating a dense R&D landscape unlike anywhere else in Germany.

Technical textiles and lightweight construction are pioneering markets of the future with considerable growth potential. The textile industry has undergone and continues to undergo a transformation which offers a wealth of opportunities to those who are interested in seizing them. The entire textile value creation chain exists in Saxony; thus, creating a very potent Textile Hub.
