From the technical and scientific point of view, INTEXTER has extensive experience in the research of textile recycling and circular economy. Research activities are focused on the development and application of special measuring techniques to analyse and optimise the textile processes in general towards a circular economy compliance.

For this project, UPC-INTEXTER is responsible for the management of the Use Cases Requirements thanks to its solid expertise in the field of close collaboration with the textile industry - crucial on the development of circular assessment modules. They will also contribute to the organization and executions of the data collection layer, due to their experience in many projects in the past related to the transversal data harvesting across the textile chain. Specifically, UPC will work on the definition of the Use Cases, which includes the Users Stories and the identification of the main barriers. For this purpose, besides the core team, INTEXTER has a strong team of researchers and technicians, experts in all fields of textile circularity that participate in the technical tasks of TRICK.

In addition, due to the well-established experience on European projects, UPC-INTEXTER will be in charge of the administrative coordination of the project. On the management side, UPC-INTEXTER has wide knowledge in EU-FP related projects, having coordinated (8)   eight research projects since FPIV and participated as a partner in several other projects.
