Why become a member?

Members do benefit from connecting to a network of institutions that share the same interest in high-level research and education in textiles. Representatives are members of the General Assembly and can be elected to the Governing Board of AUTEX, to play an active role in promoting the activities and achievements of the global academic textile community.

Who can become a member?

Universities or other higher educational institutions, which have an established reputation and tradition of research at the doctoral level in textiles, provide education leading to a BSc, an MScs degree and especially to a PhD qualification in textiles and publish papers about advanced textile research in international refereed journals.
