We’re excited to announce that NIRI will be participating in the upcoming Scaling Future Fabrics: A Materials Symposium hosted by Fashion For Good on March 20 in Amsterdam.

As collaborators on several projects with Fashion For Good, we recognise the importance of innovation in the materials sector.

NIRI CEO, Dr. Matthew Tipper and CCO, Dr. Ross Ward will join leaders from across the industry and deep dive into material projects, exploring the impact of legislation, financing in scaling innovation, and strategies for full-scale implementation. It’s an opportunity not just to learn but also to network with innovators and partners within this space.

We believe this event aligns perfectly with NIRI’s commitment to sustainable and innovative material solutions, and we would love for you to join us in exploring what the future holds for the industry.

If you’re attending the event and would like to discuss your future projects with Matthew or Ross, please contact us via enquiries@nirigroup.com.
