Sächsisches Textilforschungsinstitut e.V.

STFI Akademie

Our main areas of expertise are nonwovens, textile recycling, technical textiles, textile lightweight engineering and construction, functionalisation and digitalisation as well as testing and certification. We would like to share our knowledge with you. Our extensive programme contains topics that might be of interest to your company. Our training programme focuses on collaborative training, qualification and further training as well as textile technology projects and informing on various topics in the textile sector.


Our knowledge for your highly qualified skilled workers!

Many companies in the textile industry have built up a reputation for product quality and product innovation and are well positioned both nationally and internationally. Behind every company's performance are well-qualified employees, whether in management or in production.

The training and further education of skilled workers and the qualification of career changers are measures that are essential for the company's success.

The Sächsisches Textilforschungsinstitut e.V. would like to contribute to the success of your textile company with its new training programme. We have been an innovation partner and service provider for our customers for 30 years.

Have we aroused your interest? We look forward to welcoming you or your company's employees as participants in our training events.

Collaborative Training

Your trainees will gain broad insight into the textile industry. Our modules can supplement or deepen important training focal points.

All modules are offered as basic and advanced programme or completely individually tailored to your needs in terms of time and content.

We would be delighted to welcome trainees from your company to one of our training courses.

Qualification | Further Training

All our programmes are perfectly suited for the qualification or further training of your employees.

Especially if your company is specialised in a certain field, it may be of interest to gain professional knowledge and expertise of other textile sub-areas – theoretically or practically.

Reward the good performance of employees with a separate training opportunity. In this way, you can combine a few days outside the usual daily routine with valuable knowledge for your company.


We want to inspire people for textiles! Therefore, we offer courses at educational institutions on-site as well as internships at our institute.

Textile-Info for schools
In a double lesson, we supply you with information on our "Textile World", the apprenticeship professions of textile laboratory assistant, textile production mechanic, product finisher and chemical laboratory assistant, as well as opportunities for possible qualifications. This offer is especially suited for schools with 9th and 10th grade graduates and teachers at vocational schools, as well as employees of textile companies or interested parties. The project is suitable as team building or company event.

Internship at STFI
We currently offer two internship opportunities at our institute – the backpack and the digitalisation project. Furthermore, it is possible to send us an enquiry regarding a customised internship.
