Green light for new fibre network

The end of March saw the kick-off event for the new Hybrid Yarns Network (HyGa), initiated under the Central Innovation Programme SME (ZIM) established by Germany's Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).

The aim of this programme is the joint development of technical solutions to exploit the user-oriented potential of hybrid yarns. As well as the initiation and implementation of mutual research and development goals, the project will also endeavour to create a communication and exchange platform for development issues.

Each member of this innovation network will contribute their own special area of expertise along the value chain for the development and evaluation of technical solutions, thus maximising the network's long-term competitive strength in the hybrid yarn sector throughout Germany
