Call for Participants: THINKATHON 2019/05 FRANKFURT

The next Thinkathon collaborative ideas workshop takes place on Monday 13th to Tuesday 14th May 2019 in Frankfurt as part of the Innovation Roadshow at the Techtextil and Texprocess trade fairs. This textile innovation duo covers all aspects of technical, nonwoven and functional apparel materials, from manufacture to processing.

Organised by Sourcebook on behalf of Messe Frankfurt, the hackathon-inspired event brings teams of international, multidisciplinary experts together – from designers to developers, engineers to entrepreneurs, scientists and sustainability managers – for an intense, two day pop-up think tank to find responsible solutions to challenges in the fashion and textiles industry.

To fit with the technical theme of Techtextil and Texprocess, one challenge will explore the benefits of on-demand production, and another on the opportunities surrounding smart textiles. Hugo Boss, Zalando, Microsoft and Otto Group were some of our previous Challenge Hosts – and we can’t wait to reveal who we have for the upcoming edition.

Interested in upgrading the fashion and textiles industry? Then apply to be a Thinkathon Participant!

 

Not only will you get to collaborate with the members of your expert team, you could also meet future partners, clients or employees, kick off R&D projects, learn how to develop your ideas using the latest agile methods with the assistance of experienced systems thinking coaches, and discuss your solutions directly with the Challenge Host.

The Thinkathon will conclude with a series of short presentations in front of the Challenge Hosts during the Fashionsustain conference at Techtextil and Texprocess on Tuesday 14th May. Participants also get access to the Techtextil and Texprocess fairs and events between the 14th to 17th May, besides all the networking opportunities available there.

If you would like to participate in the Thinkathon, please fill out this form by Thursday 18th April.

 

For any further information please get in touch.
