Historical development of our institute
On February 17th 1992, the two research institutes Forschungsinstitut für Textiltechnologie (FIFT) Chemnitz and Institut für Technische Textilien (ITT) Dresden jointly continue their long-standing research work and founded Sächsisches Textilforschungsinstitut e.V. (STFI) which is registered under VR 960 in the association index.
24 enterprises and institutions of the textile industry in the Free State of Saxony and in Chemnitz with the competent participation of the Forschungskuratorium Gesamttextil (Board of Research and Development Gesamttextil) were involved in the foundation of STFI. The foundation of STFI strongly contributes to improve and extend the scientific-technical infrastructure of the textile industry in the new German countries.
