The Technical Textiles Research Centre for British Textile Week

Creating new uses for coarse British wool and exploring the potential of nanotechnology to bring new functionality in textiles are just some of the projects that are underway at a new textile research centre, which was established at the University of Huddersfield last year.

Professor Parik Goswami is the founder and director of the Technical Textiles Research Centre, which aims to re-establish the town and region as a world leader in textiles by harnessing the latest technology and manufacturing techniques.

“At the heart of this ambition is our passion for the textile industry that gave Huddersfield its global reputation for excellence and innovation,” he says, underlining that the centre is building on the town’s textile heritage, but also its expertise in chemistry and engineering.
