ABOUT

E-fibre is an AHRC funded project set up to conduct research and to build a network around electronic textiles. The project aims to delineate the role of Design in the process of innovation; to identify the cultural forces that bear on innovation in e-textiles and their potential mediation by design; to draw out the relationships between the actors in innovation, design process and ‘design thinking’, material culture studies and the history of textiles and fashion.

During April to August a series of workshops will take place to build connections and identify key questions and areas of investigation. The findings will be compiled into a scoping study, a written report that will include research in innovation theory, design process and ‘design thinking’, material culture studies and the development of textiles and fashion.
