Thinkathon: Apply now

As part of the Innovation Roadshow at the Techtextil and Texprocess fairs, participants are being sought for the interdisciplinary Idea Laboratory Thinkathon (May 13 & 14, 2019) in Frankfurt am Main. The registration period ends on Thursday, 18th April 2019.

April 2019

A hackathon-inspired event that brings together international, multidisciplinary experts – that is the Thinkathon. From designers to developers, engineers to entrepreneurs, scientists to sustainability managers - these visionary thinkers will collaborate intensively during the two-day pop-up think tank to develop future-oriented solutions for sustainability-relevant challenges in the fashion and textile industry. The results will be presented on the stage of the Fashionsustain conference on Tuesday, 14th May 2019.

The tasks are set by leading companies and organizations. Previous partners were Hugo Boss, Zalando, Microsoft and the Otto Group. To fit with the technical theme of Techtextil and Texprocess, one challenge will explore the benefits of on-demand production, and another on the opportunities surrounding smart textiles. Co-organizers Sourcebook and Messe Frankfurt ensure the widest possible spectrum and an interesting mix.

If you want to participate in the Thinkathon, you can apply until 18th April 2019. Click here for the application form.
