New learning methods to create scientifically-led more sustainable and comfortable footwear and the adaptation of the footwear industry to the current consumer demands are the main goals of the Erasmus+ SciLED project that was recently launched at its kick-off meeting in Iasi, Romania.
The first edition of University of Alicante Master’s Degree in Footwear Design, New Technologies and Innovation Management began on 22nd February in INESCOP’s facilities. The Master’s Degree started with a subject called ‘Foot, last and footwear’, which are keys to footwear design and manufacture. The training pathway of the master’s degree comprises a University Expert Degree Course, a University Specialist Degree Course and a Master’s Final Dissertation.
Representatives from the Textile, Clothing, Leather, and Footwear (TCLF) sectors have gathered in Porto, Portugal, driven by the difficulty of finding new talent with the right skills for companies, in order to attend the event "Fashion World's Challenges - Looking for Qualification, Occupations… and the right skills in the TCLF sectors" organised by the Erasmus+ Skills4Smart TCLF 2030 project, in which INESCOP participates as a partner.
INESCOP is to showcase at Simac Tanning Tech its new release of Icad3D+ v2019 software, a footwear design system that allows the designer to work in a more dynamic way in that a realistic, real-time display of the 3D model is obtained without the need of a previous rendering process.
