Partner Call for sustainability revolution on fashion and textiles

22 August, 2019
Public Call Open

VTT has a vision of producing competitive materials better than nature using the power of biotechnology.

We call for joint material development for co-creation of prototypes and a plan of scaling to market in the future. There are two main challenge streams you can support today: protein-based fibers and mycelium leather. For these projects, VTT brings top scientists and technology experts in biotechnology to work with the external partners.

We call for partners that are ready to disrupt the industry and share our passion for sustainability. Together we will bring to market the materials that we can fully recycle to secure the future without fields or plastics.
