“Nidyarn – R&D Consortium for high performance functional yarns”, promoted by Inovafil Fiação, S.A. (Portugal) and co-promoted by Centre for Textile Science and Technology (2C2T) of University of Minho, is co-funded by Portugal 2020.

This R&D project, promoted by Inovafil Fiação, S.A. in partnership with 2C2T and Fibrenamics International Platform of University of Minho aims the creation of a research and development group in the field of high performance functional yarns for use in technical textile products.

The consortium intends to concentrate and reinforce competences in the area of high performance functional nanotechnology processes, creating a solid and coherent structure of R&D based on the competencies of an entity of the Scientific and Technological System, the University of Minho, through the Centre for Textile Science and Technology and a business entity operating in the field of textile yarns, INOVAFIL, in order to foment a lasting partnership, with an adequate articulation between the two entities.

The creation of the consortium gives to the promoters the opportunity to share their competences which, in the case of INOVAFIL, includes production and marketing skills and, in the case of UMINHO, skills related to the development and incorporation of scientific knowledge. Thus, the involved entities will be able to foster internal networking and among each other in order to reinforce their capabilities and the R&D character in the area of functional yarns.

So, this project has a structuring of, at least, 5 R&D projects, related to each of the topics addressed to be carried out by the involved entities considering the challenges identified before, within a maximum of 3 years.
