Textiles Tomorrow Summit was held at Aalto University in the end of October 2019. The summit brought together around 200 textile academics, professors, and lecturers from 14 countries and 28 different universities and educational institutions, and students, as well as textile professionals from organisations, industries and businesses.

We are grateful to have had the opportunity to host textile professionals from around the world and to offer them a platform for learning, discussing and sharing ideas as a community. A special thank you to all our speakers for sharing their knowledge and expertise on the future of textiles as well as to our keynote speaker Lidewij Edelkoort who initiated the textile educators summit in 2018.
