Romanian Textile Concept

The Cluster main goal is to create an environment where our members will be able to sustain and develop their activity and to create, develop and implement programs that lead to the sustainable development of the textile industry. The cluster is a natural platform for public-private partnership in the textile industry, which includes members from the industry (manufacturers), the research and development sector (universities, research institutions), public authorities and companies with catalytic role (consulting firms, marketing – advertising, transport, etc.).
