Project

Innovative cross-border approaches Textile and Clothing Clusters co-development in the Mediterranean basin

Objectives

With an innovative approach looking at emphasizing the role of entrepreneurship for the international development of clusters and SMEs, TEX-MED Clusters project aims to foster the replacement of the old model with a more advanced one based on “multi-localization + co-contracting”, to start a co-development process to upgrade the entire textile sector in terms of competence, entrepreneurship, innovation and international competitiveness.

Its specific objectives are to increase the quantity of links, partnerships and cooperation initiatives among the Textile and Clothing (T/C) industries of the Mediterranean basin, and to speed up an industry evolution toward an integrated T/C Med system to replace the old “delocalization + subcontracting” model with a more advanced and balanced “multi-localisation + co-contracting” model.
