Networking – a community of interests for textiles 

At the Technology and Development Center, Groz-Beckert is already working on the products and applications of tomorrow. A place where innovation is everpresent is naturally a place of interest for universities and institutes – which is why, in addition to partnerships with industry, Groz-Beckert places high importance on broad cooperation with academia, in order to further develop findings from basic research  to joint ventures

The company has especially close ties with the University of Albstadt-Sigmaringen especially with the course "Material and Process Engineering". In addition Groz-Beckert has several more partnerships at the TEZ with other leading universities and institutes, one such being the Research Association for Textile Technology Albstadt (FTA).

Experts from all areas and sectors of the textile value chain meet up in the TEZ. Areas of interest of different groups are linked together, creating new opportunities for cooperation. The TEZ Auditorium provides the basis for numerous different specialist events and symposia.
