Project planning

Which actions are in progress?

Action A.1: Selection of most representative textile materials and finishing technologies

Leader: CTB

Participants: AEI TEXTIL, ATEVAL, CS-POINTEX and CLUTEX

Start date: 1/7/17 – End date: 31/10/17

In this action, partners identifyed and selected the different textile materials and finishing technologies and products to be employed for the following actions.

A survey directed to textile companies was sent to identify current use of FR products (composition and quantity) and experiences with other technologies.

A final report has been generated and it is available in the deliverable section below.

Deliverables:

A1.1 –  Selection of textiles and flame retardants

A1.3 – Report on results from survey on textile companies

Action A.2: Pre-screening of functionality and environmental impact of FR

Leader: LEITAT

Participants: CTB

Start date: 1/9/17 – End date: 31/12/17

In this action, partners did a pre-screening of the technical performance and environmental impact of the selected FR and their alternatives. The pre-screening took place using available information from the products, databases or provided by manufacturers.

Information about the technical performance of current FR materials and their alternatives and environmental impact were also collected from the bibliography, databases and by collecting the information provided by the cluster’s members.

Deliverables:

A2 – Report of the state of the art of flame retardancy performance and environmental data of FR selected

Action A.3: Selection of stakeholders and key actors

Leader: AEI TEXTIL

Participants: ATEVALCS-POINTEX and CLUTEX

Start date: 1/9/17 – End date: 30/11/17

In this action, partners identified and involved stakeholders in order to ensure the future implementation of the project results and beyond.

A database of stakeholders was prepared among the clusters in the consortium.

A total of 167 relevant stakeholders were identified.

Action C.1: Monitoring the project impacts on the environment

Leader: LEITAT

Start date: 1/9/17 – End date: 30/6/20

This action will serve to identify and quantify the environmental impacts of the project implementation and will involve the evaluation of the potential environmental impact of the introduction of the implementation actions into the EU scenario.  Expected impact of each action and the set indicators proposed by LIFE+ Programme will be tracked.

 

Action D.1: Project dissemination

Leader: AEI TEXTIL

Participants: ATEVAL, CS-POINTEX, CSIC-IQACCLUTEXCTB and LEITAT

Start date: 1/7/17 – End date: 30/6/20

This action is divided into several tasks:

  • Project Dissemination Plan
  • Website
  • Communication materials
  • Dissemination of results
  • Networking with stakeholders
  • Production of Layman’s Report

Right now we are working on dissemination materials, activities within the project following the dissemination plan developed by AEI TEXTIL earlier on the project.

Project communication materials are now available: Leaflet, Roll-up and poster.

Printing of the materials is ongoing by partners.

Action E.1: Project management and monitoring

Leader: AEI TEXTIL

Participants: , ATEVAL, CLUTEX,  CSIC-IQACCS-POINTEX, CTB and LEITAT

Start date: 1/7/17 – End date: 30/6/20

This action is divided in two tasks:

  • Project management currently active and lead by AEI TEXTIL. The first project meeting took place on July 13th and the first deliverable has been completed (Project Management Guide) and released within the consortium.
  • After-LIFE Communication plan which has yet to be started.
