As a collective research centre, Centexbel desires to reinforce the market position of the Belgian textile companies by promoting and supporting innovation. Therefore, Centexbel wants to be the most important centre of expertise on textiles in Belgium as well as being a leading centre on a European scale, with five activities that reinforce each other. Activities include applied research & development, dissemination of knowledge, standardisation, testing and certification.
Research & development, dissemination of knowledge and standardisation are offered to companies creating an added value in Europe; testing and certification are offered to all companies developing, producing, processing or applying textile products, as well as to their suppliers and customers. This takes place in complete independence and confidentiality.
To guarantee the realisation of its mission, Centexbel closely involves the textile industry, the authorities and its staff in its operation.
