WEAR Sustain ran two pan-European competitions in 2017. The first Open Call closed at the end of May 2017 and the second on 15th January 2018. Our aim was to support creative and technology collaboration for the evolution of critical, ethical, sustainable and aesthetic wearable technologies, The scope included wearables and e-textiles worn on the body that may generate body data and/or data about your environment.
The WEAR program supported artists and designers to collaborate with technologists and engineers. We aimed to support strong, well developed project ideas and take prototypes to the next level.
A total fund of €2.4m was been made available over two years, to fund teams (Our first competition funded 22 collaborations and the second 24). Projects received support and input from mentors, experts, and hubs to help realise ideas, and promote developed prototypes.
