The ITA gets the venture sponsorship prize for the venture ‘Smart Textiles – an interdisciplinary coaching system to advertise younger researchers in upcoming technologies’, which was submitted to Wilhelm-Lorch-Stiftung by ITA’s PhD candidate, Simon Kammler.
ITA scientist, Ing Pavan Manvi has developed a melt spinning system at ITA for the generation of elastic yarn from thermoplastic polyurethane, in which carbon dioxide is applied as one particular of the raw products. In her bachelor thesis, Wissel has properly developed a system chain for the CO2-primarily based yarn in a textile conclusion solution for the initial time. In cooperation with the firm, Falke, and Manvi, who supervised Wissel’s function, the yarn was applied to develop a sock, in accordance to a media assertion by ITA.
By reusing carbon dioxide from industrial waste as a raw content for textile and outfits products, the carbon dioxide stability can be enhanced and hence contributes immediately to local weather safety. The sponsorship prize of the Wilhelm-Lorch-Stiftung is endowed with €6,000 for the specialist even more coaching of Wissel.
The development of textiles with supplemental digital functions, so-called ‘Smart Textiles’, is regarded a upcoming-oriented subject of investigate. In his venture submission, Kammler presented a strategy for a lecture sequence on Smart Textiles at ITA and developed a new type of measuring stand for measuring the potential and conductivity of fibres. The venture is funded by the Wilhelm-Lorch-Stiftung with a prize cash of €10,000.
With the conception of a new lecture sequence, Kammler is supporting ITA in its aim of offering the ideal feasible coaching for younger researchers. The target is on imparting significantly-achieving interdisciplinary abilities in purchase to master the issues of latest fields of investigate.

The Wilhelm-Lorch-Stiftung, primarily based in Germany, has honoured a venture of the ITA and awarded a sponsorship prize to the ITA graduate, Ricarda Wissel. She has been awarded for her thesis ‘Implementation of elastic yarns built from carbon dioxide primarily based thermoplastic polyurethane in socks’, with funding for a matter-specific continuation of her schooling.
