Samenvatting

QUOTE 1: “The immense growth of the world population leads to the request of new sources and solutions for the consumer. The textile and clothing industry (t/c industry) is responding by investing in the field of research and development (R&D) to further grow the knowledge base of the sector. Although the t/c sector is often seen as a low-tech industry, innovation is present on different intensity levels. The report identifies the framework of R&D cooperation and identifies if there are possibilities of joint activities between textile supplier and clothing company.” QUOTE 2: “Interviews with four different experts in the area of R&D (textile supplier, research institute, trade association, scientist) and broad literature research lead to an in-depth analysis of the t/c industry regarding their R&D efforts. It shows a picture of an industry that is trying to engage in innovation but has two different business players with an individual interest regarding its end product. The research and development of textile suppliers strongly focuses on chemical and technical applications and processes where experts are invited to participate in finding new technological advancements and textile application. A clothing company, on the other hand, is very different. Their R&D activities are often directed towards non-technological innovations. The reason for this is that, next to its functional properties, the end product also has an emotional meaning to its consumer. The clothing company wants to meet this customer demand and tries to achieve this through extensive market and consumer research.” RESEARCH QUESTION What are the possibilities of Research and Development Cooperation between apparel companies and textile suppliers?
