the
change

BIOTEXFUTURE is an innovation space funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) on biobased textile research. The project is led by the adidas AG and RWTH Aachen University.

We work together with industry and research partners. Our vision is to transform the textile value chain from petroleum-based to bio-based textiles and to bring about this change together.

With the Bioeconomy Innovation Spaces funding concept, the BMBF intends to support bioeconomy research and thus drive the transformation to a sustainable, biobased economy.

OUR
objectives

Achieving our vision requires:

  • a bio-based raw material basis for plastics that is holistically sustainable
  • the application in the textile industry starting at biopolymer development to producing textiles
  • the overall societal transformation towards a bio-economy from a social and economic perspective

Projects

The innovation space BIOTEXFUTURE consists of projects funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of the “Nationalen Forschungsstrategie BioÖkonomie 2030”. BIOTEXFUTURE is part of the funding program “Innovationsräume Bioökonomie”.

The TransitionLab Insights Event Series helps to share results regarding the social environment for innovations across the textile value-chain and therby helps to spark new ideas and broaden perspectives on societal issues associated with bio-based products across BIOTEXFUTURE.
