Aim & Scope
Since the World War II to the present day, many problems occurred in different parts of the world have increased economic problems. Today’s economic systems are mainly based on capitalism, which results in serious deterioration, especially on the ecological balance of the world. Among the 17 goals presented at Sustainable Development Summit held in September 2015, industry, innovation, infrastructure, responsible production and consumption, clean energy, and quality education are some of the important ones. While the Sustainable Development policies are being prepared, it is expected that very serious sanctions will be imposed and countries will comply with these sanctions for production and consumption and fulfill their responsibilities.
In this regard, textile, leather and chemical industries higher responsibility compared to other industries. Textile, garment, leather industries are prominent industries of Turkey with high export potential and employment. However, these industry can survive and compete in the world by expanding and creating value-added, functional - smart textile products. Realization of this will be possible with the production of knowledge and innovative approaches increasing support of research and development activities.
While all these studies are carried out on a sectorial basis, the most important approach should be to not impair the quality of life. 16th International Symposium on The Recent Progress in Textile Technology and Chemistry, will be held in Bursa on May 4-6, 2017, by UCTEA Chamber Of Chemical Engineers and UCTEA Chamber Of Textile Engineers with the theme of "Future of the Textile Sector".
This symposium aims to attract high quality papers from academia and industry in the area of textiles and textile chemicals especially focusing on the topics listed below.
• Technical and Smart Textiles
• Research and Development / Product Development
• The Best Technologies in the Textile Sector
• OHS in Textile Sector
