Leadership for European Apparel Production From Research along Original Guidelines
Leapfrog is a joint research and innovation initiative of the European textile and clothing industry, led by Euratex, aiming at a technology breakthrough in the clothing industry. It brings together a critical mass of European textile and clothing companies and research centres which will attempt to develop and implement new ways of optimal fabric preparation for clothing production, automated garment manufacture, virtual garment prototyping, supply chain integration and mass customisation. The ultimate goal of LEAPFROG is to achieve a step change in productivity and competitiveness of Europe's clothing sector and to decrease its dependence on the labour cost factor.
