Drexel University seeking volunteers for e-textile focus groups

Industry News

The Pennsylvania Fabric Discovery Center (PA FDC) at Drexel University is recruiting for focus groups with e-textile professionals from diverse backgrounds to share their experiences and challenges in developing and integrating e-textile applications.

Researchers will be conducting focus groups with designers, engineers and manufacturing experts working in the e-textiles space to better understand the challenges they face in creating, implementing and transferring designs to e-textiles.

Participants will take part in one focus group with feedback from the sessions being used to inform the format, contents and anticipated users of this toolset. Each focus group session takes approximately 1.5 hours and will be held on separate days.

The sessions will be recorded by a team of Drexel faculty and students. Contact Prof. Genevieve Dion at (215) 571-4498 or Dr. Kelly Joyce at kaj68@drexel.edu with questions about the study. To register for a focus group, contact Christina Kara at functionalfabrics@drexel.edu by September 13, 2021.
