Workshop (Prato - December 2, 2011)
Kentec S.r.l. was assisted by Next Technology Tecnotessile in the dissemination activity aimed mainly at companies that belong to the textile sector, not excluding companies that are part of other sector that could increase the efficiency of their production cycle by implementing the technology solution realized within this project.
The actual dissemination activities took place on the 2nd of December 2011, during "Open Day-Opportunities to Innovate", organized by Next Technology Tecnotessile at their headquarters in Prato.
The event was planned to achieve the following three objectives:
- Explain to the companies invited to the event the issues that underlie the new process / product innovation;
- Carrying out brokerage technology to facilitate both the technology transfer and the analysis of the real needs for innovation for the companies involved;
- Create a meeting place between companies, research centers, universities and ERP's to form relationships and develop new project ideas.
The above objectives have been established within the project "OTIR 2020" in which Tecnotessile Next Technology is heavily involved as it is the coordinator of one of the new Innovation Centers created in Tuscany in 2011: "The Innovation Center for the Fashion Chain". Since the innovation center is a new entity created specifically to facilitate the dissemination of the results obtained from innovation by companies and research institutions and to support the creation of a network of collaboration between companies to increase the competitiveness of the region, the company Kentec Srl was involved in the first big event held by the Fashion Center.
