The core of Fibrenet is a coalition of 7 European universities and 8 industrial organizations operating in the field of fibres. Our common goal is finding comprehensive solutions to improve and tailor the properties of fibre products. This would enable new environmentally friendly products and products with totally new functionalities. We are concentrating on bio-based fibres, either natural or man-made in origin. We seek solutions that are suited for different application areas and to guarantee the suitability, we have brought together experts from three growing sectors of bio-based industry: biocomposites, paper&packaging materials and medical textiles.
FibreNet is funded by H2020-MSCA-ITN. It is an umbrella project for 15 individual research projects in the field of fibres. The goals of the umbrella project are:
The common thread in all our research and educational efforts is sustainability.
