DeFINE Launch Event

Developing a Fashion-tech Innovation Network for Europe (DeFINE) is supporting the future of European fashion. By bringing together fashion and technology communities, it will encourage innovation, collaboration and growth.

We will develop a network of incubators & accelerators, start-ups & SMEs, and financiers to form a European fashion-technology community where cross-sectoral knowledge will be shared, ideas will grow and transnational collaboration will be nurtured.

On Tuesday 12th (Info Day) and Wednesday 13th February 2019 (Launch Event), we will officially launch the project at Première Vision (Paris) with two days of workshops, talks, discussions and sharing ideas.

If you are a start-up or SME working within the fashion supply chain or developing new technologies, or an incubator supporting these businesses, we invite you to join us to meet the DeFINE community and contribute to the development of the European Fashion Tech Innovation network.
