The University of Boras - Swedish School of Textiles, Politecnico di Milano – Dipartimento di Design and University of the Arts - London College of Fashion have started a strategic partnership for higher education within the novel field of Fashion-Tech.

 

The project is called “Education4Fashion-Tech: Interdisciplinary Curriculum for Fashion in the Digital Era”, it started on the 1st of September 2017 and ends on the 31st of August 2020. The project is financed by the European Union through the Erasmus+ action KA203 - Strategic Partnerships for higher education.

 

The aim of EDU4Fashion-Tech is to bridge the fashion field with that of innovative technologies by creating a new training pathway to improve the level of key competencies and skills of students and trainers and to break down barriers between technologists and creative communities and build meaningful collaboration. The objectives of the project will be achieved through the delivery of: intellectual outputs; learning, teaching or training activities; and multiplier events.

Specific

Targets

1. Development of digital capabilities next to design skills (3D                    virtual design & prototyping, AR/VR, HMI, coding embedded in the        design process).

2. Enhance craftsmanship skills hybridizing them with                              digital manufacturing.

3. Technological insights enabling designers to work with                          scientists, computer-engineers and biologists in order to develop        and innovate for material, products or manufacturing processes to      invent new applications.

4. Equipping designers with collaborative design and innovation              capabilities to deliver more effective ways of developing disruptive      products and product/services.

5. Mastering co-creation and user-driven innovation processes.

6. Strengthening capabilities to interpret socio-technological trends,        consumer insights and narratives.

7. Industrially relevant transferable skills necessary for innovation

    management and product development.

8. Enhance creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem-          solving, communication and collaboration (21st-century skills).
