1.3 Main Achievements
2C2T has been involved worldwide in the development of textile and clothing science and
technology, with interest in subjects that are more relevant to the industry’s competitiveness.
In a broad sense, it can be referred that those subjects are related with Advanced Materials,
Technical Textiles, Equipment Development, Quick Response Strategies and other emergent
technologies. Therefore the goals are centred in the development of innovative solutions in
strategic and emergent areas involving the textile chain:
•
Development of new materials /products.
•
Innovative and improved manufacturing processes, methods, equipments and
integrated systems.
•
Development of supporting technologies to materials/product engineering.
•
Development of new design methodologies, management and product marketing.
ensuring the utilization of the developed solutions through knowledge and technology
transfer.
In the field of materials/product innovation, the research projects are mainly oriented towards
the design and development of functional/multifunctional textiles (smart textiles), reactive
(bio-functional textiles), active (self-regulating textiles) and interactive (electronic textiles)
applied to:
•
Protection, Safety, Occupational Health
•
Automotive
•
Construction
•
Health (Medical)
•
Social Inclusion
In the area of innovative and flexible production processes, the research projects are currently
focused in the knitting and sewing sectors, enzymatic processes, micro encapsulation, plasma
and 3D preforms, concerning the development of equipments, processes and systems for
monitoring and real-time process control devices to impart quality and productivity.
In the supporting technologies area for product engineering the research projects are
essentially oriented to the development of equipment to evaluate or improve
materials/products quality and properties, as well as, to design and engineer new products.
Concerning new management methodologies, design and marketing, the projects are mainly
focused on methods and integrated systems for new and high added-value products design
and on the conception of new market labels, innovative in terms of design, materials,
production technologies and process management (design / production / distribution /
retailing) .
The great majority of projects is developed in collaborative partnerships with other UM
research units, institutions and enterprises, involving national or international
multidisciplinary.
This approach significantly contributed to develop synergies and stimulate research carried out
using internal resources and/or external financing resulting in national and international
funded projects.
The activity of the unit can be quantified by the following indicators:
5 books and chapters of books, 57 publications in international journals, 2 publications in
national journals, 88 communications in international conferences (proceedings), 4
communications in national conferences, 5 organization of seminars and conferences, 6
doctoral and 42 masters theses concluded, 38 doctoral and 18 master theses in progress, 5
patent, supported on 47 funded projects and other non funded projects, promoted by FCT
funding.
Reference must also be made for several cooperation protocols signed with companies, for
technical support or product development.
The Textile and Clothing Industries are in nature multidisciplinary involving multiple
competences, concerning product, processes and equipment development, design,
management and marketing, among others.
Therefore research projects integrated multiple scientific and technological domains and
research teams involve members from different research Units, namely with researchers from
electronics, mechanics, materials, physics, chemistry and biology, from internal or external
institutions, as can be seen in the list of projects and publications presented in this report.
In order to promote cross disciplinary research, non formal meetings between members of
distinct research centres were organized and encouraged. In this regard, some concrete
actions were taken, namely through the funding that was allocated to preliminary research
studies in subjects involving at least three different domains (In2Tec projects).
Besides research, 2C2T promotes research training leading to technology and knowledge
transfer across different domains through the participation and promotion of Master Courses.
Also 2C2T members are collaborating in other Master Courses, namely on those promoted by
School of Engineering. Another type of dissemination that is being followed is Industrial thesis
made by first degree students. Relative to this strategy, cooperation protocol between the
leading textile associations (ATP, Anivec) the Ordem dos Engenheiros (Portuguese engineer’s
chamber) and the Portuguese Employment and Training Institute – IEFP, to promote the
cooperation between the industry and university, towards sustainable competitiveness. In the
period, 6 PhD Thesis and 42 MSc Thesis were produced, most of them in collaboration with
other departments and with industry.

2.1.8 Future Objectives
The future objectives of the Textile Physics research group rely mainly on the research areas
previously defined that represent a medium-long term group strategy. In this context, the
prioritization of the research areas was also defined and in the past was mainly focused on the
development of flexible and intelligent process control systems and new equipment. In the
short term, the group is mainly targeting the research challenge that is subjacent to the
development and innovation of high–tech multifunctional textiles and the development of
technologies with specially designed modifications for this new generation of textiles. This can
be assessed by the on-going projects in which the group members are involved and in the
publications that are being submitted/accepted.
Internationalisation continues to be a goal, either through the consolidation of networks of
experts and research institutions, either through the involvement in European standardisation
institutions and in international committees. Industrial contracts within cooperation protocols
with individuals and companies to promote technology and knowledge transfer, as well as, the
establishment of a training international network in the area of High-Tech Textiles (a Master
course started in 2007/08) are short-term goals of the group.
The Textile Physics group enjoys effective and well-established mechanisms for knowledge and
technology transfer to industry. The projects support graduate students that represent an
important vehicle for knowledge transfer. By emphasizing team-based interdisciplinary
research within the group, students are trained in a mode that is critically important to
meeting the complex, fast-moving challenges of industry.
New materials with switchable and adaptive properties, integration of microsystems in textiles
and textile-based sensors, open a huge field for the development of new constructions which
will be integrated in applications for technical and protective textiles. They will be developed
for the use in medical/empowerment clothing, surgical textiles in operation theatre,
protection and sports wear, clean room textiles and automotive textiles.
The production of all these innovative materials and constructions will be reached with new
and/or adapted processes in textile production industry.

Several research projects are being undertaken with funding from the Portuguese government,
the European Commission and directly by companies. These research projects are leading to
important results that are being published in scientific journals and presented at top level
international conferences. Various prototypes have been produced and patents are pending.
As many projects are undertaken with companies, there is a great involvement of the
researchers with the companies, which puts research results to use in product development.
