Bioresorbable knitted yarns and meshes for the treatment of genital prolapse
This interreg project consists of the creation of semi-resorbable textile reinforcement implants for the treatment of genital prolapse (commonly known as « organ descent »). These new implants will have mechanical properties perfectly adapted to the problem of genital prolapse.

Monitoring the detection and localization of fluid leaks on reported waterproofing membranes made of composite materials.
To prevent pollution of the environment by effluents, nuclear power plants are equipped with storage and fluid retention structures. In order to guarantee a tightness of these structures, membranes of composite materials are used as reported sealing systems.The contribution of the GEMTEX laboratory in this project lies in the development of a detector filament (liquid, mechanical stresses or gas) that will be made by melt spinning through the insertion of conductive nanocharges in an insulating thermoplastic (polymer composite driver).

Circular fashion in Hauts-de-France: mobilisation and commitment of stakeholders for a transformative ecosystem.
Supported by ADEME, the French Agency for Ecological Transition, the REZOMODECO project aims to build a transformative ecosystem in fashion: proposing more responsible production, distribution and consumption in the textile sector. In contrast to the « fast fashion » economic model, which is based on the rapid renewal of short, low-priced ready-to-wear lines, the project’s researchers are proposing economic models that are more virtuous at the environmental, economic and social levels.
