Florian Wieczorek has a degree as a state-certified fashion designer. He then decided to study clothing technology (B. Eng.) at Albstadt-Sigmaringen University. In the master’s program he chose the course “Textile & Clothing – Technical Textiles” (M. Sc.) at Reutlingen University. Within his studies he specialized quite early in the field of “knitting technology”.
Since mid-2016, he has been working at the Institute of Textile Machinery and High Performance Material (ITM) in the research group Textiles for Lightweight Applications. Here he worked on the topics of smart textiles, medical textiles and lightweight structures. However, when he joined CeTI, the topic of smart textiles came more and more into his focus. He’s mainly concerned with the integral manufacturing of such textiles.

What do you value most about your work at CeTI?
It’s especially great to get to know other disciplines and witness how they interact with each other. In this way, you develop yourself enormously and don’t just stay strictly in your area of expertise.
What was your best moment at CeTI so far?
I’ve been with CeTI since the beginning, so there have been a lot of defining moments. I can’t really make up my mind. But it always has something to do with the great colleagues.
What else would you like to research?
I am very happy with my discipline. In general, I would like to see smart textiles become more mainstream and more people realize how cool the topic is.
