Exporters from Tirupur will organize a R&D conclave in Coimbatore. Products of R&D associations of India, as well as innovative technology, will be displayed at the upcoming conclave. The event aims at giving commercial value to research-based products of various Indian textile research associations.
The conclave will benefit stakeholders textile industry as well as research associations as they don’t have such a platform yet which can connect them with the industry directly. The R&D conclave is being viewed as a support to Indian research associations as their products will be displayed at the event and hence commercialised. This will attract textile and apparel manufacturers and push them to explore how these products can be promoted in Indian and overseas markets.
Industry and research associations will also get an opportunity to exchange views about their existing and upcoming research projects to make the products more viable from the industry perspective. There are eight such textile research associations: Northern India Textile Research Association, Ghaziabad; The Bombay Textile Research Association, Mumbai; South India Textile Research Association, Coimbatore; Ahmedabad Textile Industry’s Research Association; Wool Research Association, Mumbai; Indian Jute Industries’ Research Association, Kolkata; Man-Made Textile Research Association, Surat; and Synthetic & Art Silk Mills’ Research Association, Mumbai.
