    The LIFE OXATAN project was acknowledged by the European Commission as “the Best of the Best” LIFE Environment projects in 2012.

    Thanks to this project, a new tanning technique based on oxazolidine was developed, which allows, on the one hand, a reduction in the environmental impact, and on the other hand, the production of high-performance leathers with softness, fullness and flexibility properties that can be suitable for footwear, upholstery and leather goods sectors.

  • INGA3D

    INGA 3D

    INGA 3D emerged due to the difficulties that European footwear companies faced when trying to employ highly-skilled VET graduates in computer-aided 3D footwear design. For that reason, the project created a training material for footwear CAD and an online platform.

    Nowadays, both IED Madrid and the "Gheorghe Asachi" Technical University of Iaşi (Romania) are teaching with this training material.
