About the event

The Network aims to foster active bilateral collaboration and will bring together innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers and investors from the UK and Nigeria to promote the adoption and development of circular fashion products and services.

This event will feature engaging presentations from representatives in the UK and Nigeria, as well as create a platform for inspiring keynote discussions from UK and Nigerian experts in the circular fashion sector, sustainable fashion research and alternative natural fibres as well as provide valuable insights into the circular fashion industry and innovative opportunities for collaboration between both countries. The event will highlight the three focus areas for the Network:

  • Redefining chemicals in production/manufacturing
  • Recycling and upcycling of textiles
  • Innovating sustainable materials for sustainable fabrics

These focus areas will open the channel for members to share knowledge, collaborate on projects, and access funding and support opportunities.
