LAUNCH Nordic Challenge 2014 – in search of disruptive innovations that will transform the system of textiles, fabrics and fibers to the better.

Do you have an innovation or idea that can revolutionize how we produce, use or reuse fabrics and textiles today? Then IKEA, Nike, NASA and Novozymes can help you go to scale. LAUNCH Nordic is a global innovation platform with the aim to identify and foster new ideas to create breakthrough innovations that will transform our system into a more sustainable one. It was kickstarted at the LAUNCH Nordic Summit, where C.L.A.S.S was invited to be part of the collaborative journey together with designers, big brands, politicians, academics and raw material experts to transform the system of textiles and fabrics to the better. LAUNCH Nordic selects 10 innovators and provide them with mentoring, support and network from global pioneers.
