Event details

To publicise the successful outcomes of the EU funded Interreg IVC PLUSTEX project, this event will explore collaborative opportunities for the creative industries, in our region, arising from the project.

To publicise the successful outcomes of the EU funded Interreg IVC PLUSTEX project, the team from the University of Southampton (Winchester School of Art) is holding a workshop event to explore collaborative opportunities for the creative industries, in our region, arising from the project.

Plustex has just been completed after a three year programme of research, had a total budget of 1.8 million euros and nine international partners. The purpose of the project was to study regional and national policies that had positive impact on the competitiveness of the textile and clothing sector and to examine how good practice and policies could be transferred across Europe. More information can be found at www.plustex.eu

The workshop aims to bring together representatives of regional universities involved in the creative industries, and specifically the textile and fashion sector, with local authorities and development agencies, to think about ways to develop the findings of Plustex to benefit the retention of skilled graduates in the region.

The workshop will be facilitated by Charles Freeman of Creative Networks South and hosted by Professor Paul Whittaker, Associate Dean Education, Faculty of Business and Law, and the Plustex project team.
