Due to the Corona crisis, the BTF Forum will unfortunately not be able to take place in the knownandappreciated face-to-face conference format.
However, there needs to be a change in the textile world
towards more sustainable biobasedvalue chains.
Join the interactive digital BTF Forum
The BTF Forum is aimed at both BIOTEXFUTURE members and interested parties. The BTF Forum is conceived as a platform for industry, science, media and politics and is intended to act as a generator of ideas and networks.
