Insights & Inspiration

Sharing methods, ideas, and innovations

ACTE believes in people and ideas. On this page, named Insights & Inspiration, we share experiences and insights for individuals, industries, and territories. So that we can create the fabrics of the future together.

Here, at Insights & Inspiration you find many different solutions already in use.

Over the years, members of the ACTE organisation have been pursuing innovative projects and ideas. For example, recently we published our White paper on Textile Waste management (produced by Modacc) and some of the published ideas and innovations are included here.

Well-functioning ideas
Through ACTE, we also share ideas on design, cultural heritage and other inspiring projects. These are often  international projects, sometimes supported by the EU.
We also share links to the sources, so that you read more about the background, challenges, and solutions.
