Lineapelle – LEM conference room - Ponte dei Mari (side pav. 22)
Wednesday 19th February 2020, H. 10.00 - 10.30 AM

Presentation of the initiative European Light Industries Innovation and Technology (ELIIT), a project funded by the COSME Programme of the European Union for the competitiveness of Enterprises and Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs).

ELIIT aims at supporting European cooperation to promote the use of disruptive technology-ready solutions to improve productivity, value chain integration, resource efficiency and to create new high added-value products and services in the textile, clothing, leather and footwear (TCLF) industries.

Through different calls for proposals, ELIIT will select 25 partnerships between TCLF SMEs and providers and/or owners of novel and innovative technologies, which will benefit from:

  • Financial support of 70.000 EUR to develop products or prototypes with high-added value and profitability
  • A tailor-made coaching and advice programme on technical and/or soft skills to elevate the relevance of projects and increase their capabilities
  • Facilitating market-positioning and professional links between members of partnerships and other key players by organising networking activities and attendance at relevant workshops, conferences and exhibitions
  • SME tailored support to strengthen intellectual property rights protection
