In 2020 the International Federation of Knitting Technologists (IFKT) was looking forward to celebrating its 50th Congress however due to Covid19 this was paused and now in 2022 the 50th biennial Congress event of the IFKT will take place in Belfast hosted by Ulster University.
This leading conference in knitting technology and analogous technologies provides an opportunity for both researchers, practitioners, and industry to exchange new ideas and practical experiences from a diverse range of knitting expertise.
The role of knitting technology both warp and weft cuts across many fields including fashion, interiors, sport, military, medical, automotive, aerospace, fibre technology, Computer Aided design, smart textiles, and technical textiles.
The theme of sustainability is an essential approach in all that we do, sustaining future practice, being sustainable in design and sustaining our knitting industry.
IFKT 2022 while celebrating its 50th milestone seeks to encourage dialogue and discussion among participants about general topics as well as this year’s special theme.
We invite various types of contributions from researchers, educators, practitioners, and industrialists to address the broad spectrum of knitting technology challenge.
