Techtextil Competitions

Techtextil – Leading international Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens – organised this year the 15th 'Textile Structures for New Building' contest. As in the years before the international association TensiNet supportied the contest as a sponsor with prize money amounting to € 8,000.

The Techtextil competitions for students and young professionals are designed to identify innovative thinking and innovative solutions to problems, featuring construction projects capable of concrete realisation which use textiles or textile-reinforced materials. A further aim is to encourage students and new entrants to the professions. The competition is intended to strengthen contacts between the younger generation, the technical- textiles industry, the universities and broad sections of the building industry.
