Grant Awarded To Transatlantic Textile Network

Grant Awarded ToTransatlantic Textile Network The College of Textiles at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, N.C.; Philadelphia University, Philadelphia; and the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, Dartmouth, Mass.; have received a grant from the U.S. Department of Educations Fund for the Improvement of Secondary Education (FIPSE) to start a transatlantic network for textile students. ENSAIT, France; RWTH Aachen, Germany; and UPC, Spain; are the European partner universities involved in the program. The European partners are sponsored by the Belgium-based European Commission.The purpose of the Transatlantic Textile Network is to facilitate the exchange of students between the schools, to cooperate on curriculum issues, to facilitate international internships and to create the possibility of virtual student exchange allowing students to work on joint projects on both continents.According to Dr. Helmut Hergeth, associate professor, Textile and Apparel Management, North Carolina State University, textiles and apparel are global industries, and future textile leaders need to be able to cooperate across borders without problems or hesitation. With this grant from FIPSE, efforts from U.S. universities to expose students to global opportunities will move to a new level. April 2001
