The crossroads of the world of fashion and technologies has opened the doors to emerging research opportunities of great economic and innovative potential.
The tendency to include technology in clothing and accessories will increase, satisfying unresolved needs and finding new ways to communicate.
Through a training programme that covers the major disciplines which will became prominent in the fashion world -3D printing for manufacturing, including sensors to generate other types of interaction, the use of new smart materials, and others-, BFT Lab wants to put the industry in a competitive position comparable to that of similar companies installed in major global capitals like New York, London or Paris, besides acting as a catalyst of this latent potential.
The programme intends to create a complete community made up of technologists, designers, fashion companies and organisations developing cooperation projects linked to the fashion industry. The aim is to support the sector to empower it and to place the city of Bilbao at the forefront of this technological change.
