Equipment and Competences

Who are we?
Founded under the leadership of Istanbul Textile and Raw Materials Exporters` Association, and with the partnership of Güneydoğu Anadolu, Uludağ, Akdeniz, Ege Tekstil ve Hammaddeleri İhracatçıları Birlikleri and Textile Technology Institute at RWTH Aachen University—one of Germany’s leading textile technology institutes— “İstanbul Tekstil Araştirma Geliştirme ve Eğitim A.Ş“ is a project of many firsts. In addition to being the first sectorial Research and Development Center which will develop fiber based technological solutions, it is a project, in which the knowledge and competencies of the newest generation of Turkish researchers who have specialized in R&D in Germany will be brought to our country.

In ITA Istanbul, we develop new raw sources, new production technologies and innovative work models to provide economical, ecological and social innovations for future changes in the Turkish Textile Sector. We provide fiber-based solutions for application areas such as transportation, construction-building, communication-information technology, healthcare, as well as the traditional textile industry.
