Alpine Proof – the alpine seal of approval
On the european Forum Alpbach the Standortagentur Tirol arranged on thursday 22.08.2014 the 13th technology-brunch. Representatives of Tyrol and Vorarlberg and diverse companies were there to talk about innovative research on textiles.
The most considerable project amongst others is the collaboration between polychromelab 2610 and the institutes for textile physics (Prof. Dr. Thomas Bechthold) and for ski and alpine (Prof. Mag. Dr. Werner Nachbauer) of the university of Innsbruck. Made possible by the support of the OEAV section Hall and the Glungezer Hütte there is now a chance for apparel companies to scientifically test their products and textiles under real conditions in the tyrolean nature.
Through the conception of polychromelab – because we put emphasis on apparel that keeps its promises – the project Alpine Proof came to live. Broad collaboration and financial support will take applied science for textiles to the next level. In winter 2013/2014 the first testing session already took place: tents by the german company Heimplanet were testet in the polychromelab 2610.
Here is the official news release by Standortagentur Tirol:
