Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU research and innovation programme ever. Almost €77 billion of funding is available over seven years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private and national public investment that this money will attract.

Horizon 2020 will help to achieve smart, sustainable and inclusive economic growth. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science and technology, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering solutions to big challenges facing our society.

Atlantic leather is proud to be a part of this program and we are so excited to be working with experts in their own field and we cannot wait to start the work, which will in the end lead us to even more sustainable solutions.

The Atlantic leather team attended the Kick-off event in Eilat Israel with great results. The project will bring together a community of experts including fashion design academics, scientists and artisans, with the aim of improve knowledge of sustainable methods for fish skin production to address the pressing sustainability issues in the current fashion industry.

We will keep you posted.
