GALACTICA aims to support the creation of new industrial value chains related to the textile and aerospace sector based on advanced manufacturing across the EU to accelerate future growth and employment by developing long-term competitive goods and services at the global level requiring the combination of different skills and innovative solutions.


This is a strategic association of European clusters comprising five textile and advanced manufacturing clusters from 3 countries: France, Portugal and Spain. The main objective of CLAMTEX is to promote excellence in the management of groups of participating European countries to promote their innovation ecosystem, strengthening intersectoral and trans-regional collaboration to facilitate the adoption of digitization in both sectors.


This is a footwear production project capable of producing sustainable goods based on a circular economy. From our eco-workshop, we are capable of designing, producing and marketing  vegan shoes and accessories made with recycled, organic materials with 90% less energy and almost ZERO waste. Our main differentiating factor and the biggest challenge we face is the implementation of RECYCLING as an essential requirement in our designs.


An association comprising the major textile clusters in Europe will allow SMEs to be provided with specialised business support services, such as specific, strategic contacts in the target market, organization of international study visits, association missions, matchmaking events and incoming events.


Advanced manufacturing and advanced textile materials for internationalisation will strengthen resilience and boost industrial recovery.
