The TEXP@CT agenda's main objective is to leverage companies in the Clothing Textile Sector (STV) and companies in the TICE and Production Technologies sectors to levels, respectively, of digitalization and a range of technological offerings that are markedly higher.



With TEXP@CT, the sector is intended to have a significant boost in terms of the adoption of digital technologies and solutions, while at the same time becoming more attractive for current and future human resources, more resilient, more sustainable and more sophisticated. To this end, it is intended:

  • Increase the level of digitalization of STV companies, using reference companies as anchors
  • Promote industrial pilots that serve as a beacon for the sector
  • Increase the increase in solutions and technologies available for the Textile and Clothing Industry (ITV) sector
  • Contribute to the volume of exports, through new digital solutions and technologies and, on a more distant level, a stronger ITV
  • Filling gaps in the digital skills of professionals in the ITV sector


The Pact for the Digitalization of the Textile Industry will make 18 new products and services available with the potential for adoption of these solutions. Automatic scanning solutions, introduction of robotic cells, digital printing, 3D simulation, AI for predictive equipment maintenance, are just a few examples.​​​​



The development of generic solutions, but focused on the textile and clothing industry, will increase the economic value of these same solutions when compared to others, similar, but with an isolated presence.

The vast majority of solutions to be developed can be sold in different geographies (countries such as Italy, Spain, France or even Germany, which have a strong textile presence and where these solutions can be exported), given that the processes inherent to the The textile and clothing industries are clearly similar, suffering from inequalities, above all, in the degree of implementation of automation and digitalization of processes.
