Masterclass II: Nanotechnologies – Wearables and Advanced Textiles
Smart textiles are fabrics that provide the wearer with increased functionality. These textiles have numerous potential applications, such as the ability to communicate with other devices, health monitoring, protection from environmental hazards and promotion of healthy lifestyle due to enhanced properties (e.g. antimicrobial, flame-retardant, easy-cleaning, thermal comfort). Research and development towards wearable and advanced textiles is a fastest growing area, with practical applications into sportswear, automotive and entertainment, healthcare & safety and military products.
In this context, the goal of this Masterclass was to bring together renowned researchers from various disciplines who are at the forefront of wearable and advanced textiles research and are contributing to improve textile properties by adding new functionalities and smartness to fabrics. The class also promoted crosstalk at the intersections of frontiers in electronics, physics, materials science and nanotechnology, by exploring several approaches for the development of advanced textiles.
