OPEN CALL: Collaborative art, design and technology innovation in Wearable Technology and smart/e-textiles
The EU H2020 WEAR Sustain project is organising two Europe-wide competitions to develop what could or should be considered Next Generation Wearables and smart textiles that are critical-ethical-aesthetic.
The program is seeking applications from teams in art or design to work with technology or engineering entrepreneurs to co-innovate. We aim to support strong, well developed ideas and take prototypes to the next level.
Up to €50,000 of funding is available to teams, which offers the means to jumpstart promising co-created concepts, and receive support from experts towards the development of a prototype as a possible go-to-market trajectory. Co-applicants will be promoted as pioneers of ethical and sustainable wearables, and e-textiles.
Call 1 is now open. Submission Deadline: 30th May 2017.
