Research topics

Textile research is incredibly diverse. For a better overview, the various research topics and current projects are therefore assigned to ten different subject categories, ranging from A for "architecture" to Z for "Zukunftsstadt" (the German word for "future city"). They invite you to immerse yourself in the interesting and surprising world of textile research.

Would you have thought that textiles could be made of stone (basalt fibres) or that one can use them to check the technical condition of wind turbines without dismantling the plant?
