GEMTEX, TEXTILE REASEARCH LABORATORY


FIELDS OF RESEARCH

GEMTEX is a multidisciplinary national research laboratory of University of Lille/ENSAIT Engineer School aiming at developing advanced materials, processes and computational techniques for innovations of textile industry. GEMTEX is composed of 3 research groups, namely HCD (Human-Cerntered Design), MTP (Multifunctional Textiles and Processes) and MTC (Mechanics Textile Composites). Intelligent textiles (sensors, actuators and wearable systems) and textile sustainable development (LCA, circular economy, textile recycing, green materials) constitute two transversal research themes inside the Laboratory.
