I:CO supports Mistra Future Fashion
The interdisciplinary research program Mistra Future Fashion aims to enable systemic change in fashion via circular economy and changed mindsets. I:Co is a proud supporter of the program and its mission. The research is focused on Circular Economy, and how to enable today’s linear industry to transform into a circular and more sustainable one. Divided up into four research themes; Design, Supply, User and Recycling, the goal is to support companies in creating a circular economy for materials and products, and to have a decisive impact on policy and practice which encourage systemic change of the fashion industry. Mistra Future Fashion is primarily funded by the Swedish MISTRA Foundation and hosted by the Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE). The program operates cross disciplinary with a consortium of 15 research partners and more than 50 additional partners and from the fashion sector. www.mistrafuturefashion.com
