WEAR Sustain is a €3M project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation initiative. It runs from January 2017 to December 2018. It aims to engage wearable technology stakeholders to work more closely with designers and artists across Europe, to shift the development of the EU wearables and e-textiles industries towards a more sustainable and ethical approach. The scope includes wearables and e-textiles that you wear on your body and that may collect body data and/or data about your environment 

WEAR Sustain has two Europe-wide competitions. The first Open Call closed at the end of May 2017 and the second will open from mid November 2017 to mid January 2018. The program is seeking applications from creatives, such as artists or designers, to collaborate with technologists or engineers. We aim to support strong, well developed project ideas and take prototypes to the next level. A total fund of €2.4m will be made available over two years, to fund 48 teams. Projects will receive support and input from mentors, experts and hubs to help realise ideas, and promote developed prototypes.
