Next week Ohmatex CTO Christian Dalsgaard speaks at the ITechStyle Summit 2018 in Porto, where he will be presenting our work for ESA and what it takes to bring smart textiles to the International Space Station ISS. Bringing a product to ISS is a complicated process with several steps. Ohmatex is currently in the final phase of documenting the scientific value by testing the equipment in weightlessness.

Recently, Christian Dalsgaard also visited Porto as part of the 6th EURATEX Convention in October 2017. European Apparel and Textile Confederation (EURATEX) asked Ohmatex to share our experience in bringing innovation to the market through a panel discussion dealing with “Industrial competitiveness in the innovation and technology paradigm”. Around 300 participants attended the convention which included EURATEX members from all over EU representing T&C Industries, local companies, etc.

When Christian Dalsgaard has delivered his inspirational speech on “Bringing smart textiles to space” in Porto next weeks, he continues his travels. First stop is Seoul (Korea) and next up is Singapore catching up on projects and prospects in Asia. All in all, a busy week in the true spirit of Ohmatex to continuously innovate in the cross field of electronics and textiles.
