Knowledge Session I: Learn more about Smart Clothing

Learn more

One of the first thing you think about in the morning is… what am I going to wear today? Now imagine that your clothes – on top of making you look and feel good – would do something else for you. Smart clothing is the future of wearables. Monitoring physiological parameters, from simple movement to respiration or heart rate, just by wearing your usual, but smarter clothes. You will have the opportunity to know how you sit, how you walk, or how you work out all day long, just by wearing your usual, but smarter clothes. We strive to develop smart garments for health and sport applications that are unobtrusive, natural feeling and accessible to everyone.

What Attendees say

The #wetechtogether conference held in 2022 has received a lot of reviews from past attendees. Here’s a glimpse of what they had to say about their experience:

wtt 2023 Women participants are speaking

Many inspiring & role model women! A lot to learn in the workshops! Nice networking & conversations & good food 🙂

I liked relevance (such an event is so much needed), attendees, attractive workshops & companies, diversity of formats, talent matching, no goodie bag (waste), food, and much more.

The networking was great and the knowledge sessions very informative. Also the food was great for a conference, well done.

 I love the atmosphere, never do I feel so welcomed in tech as at this conference.

I really enjoyed the knowledge sessions and workshops sessions. These sessions allowed me to discover new things.

I liked that presenters were from different fields and with different backgrounds, the workshops were hands-on and the lunch was delicious and super healthy.

Lots of time for networking and super friendly, open atmosphere.

Look at pictures from last year.
