2020 FFF Expert Talks - Live Webinar Series
Collaboration is Key
Date: Thursday, July 23
Time: 1:00 PM EDT
It’s never easy to get everyone to agree, but for e-textiles, this can be particularly challenging! With parties from across the textiles and electronics industries, plus regulatory and environmental interests, there is no shortage of ideas or opinions. Learn the answers to questions you didn’t even know to ask. A crash course in terminology, orders of magnitude, and diplomacy for a productive dialogue about e-textiles. Plus, an update on existing and draft standards for evaluating e-textiles and how you can join the discussion. In a fun yet informative format AATCC will share best practices for establishing common ground to bridge the communication gaps and push the frontier for e-textiles.
