Di4Tex- - Fostering digital transformation in the textile industry

— The Erasmus project (KA210-VET-DDE7F72A) is implemented in cooperation with two partner organizations, Technological University of the Shannon: Midlands Midwestse, IDEAM Cluster, Ireland and  Gremi textil de Terrassa from Spain.

The project content focuses on promoting digital transformation in the textile industry.

—   What issue does it address?

Together with partners, the project addresses the issue of recognizing the importance and introduction of digitization processes in the textile industry with the aim of faster development of digital readiness, resilience and capacity of textile companies. The project also focuses on identifying and meeting the needs for education and training of young people for the needs of the labour market in the textile industry.

—   Digitization of the textile industry

Di4Tex project addresses a certain target group of employees in the textile industry in Slovenia and Spain. The target group are individuals who hold managerial positions, such as general managers, sales managers, production managers and development managers. These types of positions are mostly occupied by engineers with many years of experience within the sector or by individuals employed at faculties and other educational institutions.

The implementation of the educational program developed as part of the project, which takes into account the demonstrated needs of companies, would enable those interested to provide training and guidance for the implementation of new technologies in the company. As part of the project, we collected results on the level of digitization of twenty Slovenian textile companies. The online questionnaire covered areas such as the company's digital strategy, data processing level, digital capacity, processes, user experience, risk and compliance.

—   Long-term goals

The long-term goal of the project is to offer the textile industry in Slovenia and Spain the possibility of online training for employees in textile industry companies that strive to digitize work processes. Of course, it should be emphasized that the learning content is also in the process of being created and everyone who is involved in testing can contribute to the improvement of the emerging materials to the best of their abilities.
