Succesful webinar on French-Dutch cooperation in circular fashion and textiles

June 12, 2020

On Wednesday June 10th Holland Circular Hotspot 60+ participants joined the webinar by Holland Circular Hotspot in cooperation with the Dutch Embassy in France. Topic of the webinar was the opportunities for Dutch circular textile solutions in France. Nico Schiettekatte, Head of Economic Section of Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in France highlighted the possibilities for Dutch entrepreneurs and what the embassy has to offer. Alice Gras of Hall Couture gave a summary of her research on the current state of the French textile tech industry. Her impression is that the Dutch have something to add as they are used to take the total supply chain into account and look beyond country borders. Rens Tap of Modint gave an impression of the possibilities of support for international expansion of textile companies. Mieke Evers of RVO led the audience through a number of showcases with international potential.

In the panel led by Ruben Dubelaar the experts agreed that collaboration is key, exchange of knowledge and cooperation is needed to take things further. Nico Schiettekatte of the Embassy concluded the webinar by summarizing the support the embassy can offer in 3 A’s: Access to information, Access to networks and Access to finance.
