Textiles for the extreme

Following research at the Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), the start-up company Oxeon was founded in 2003 to commercialise an innovative textile production process. The resulting materials have exceptional performance in e.g. sporting, industrial and aerospace applications – even featuring in the robotic helicopter “Ingenuity” recently deployed on Mars. The co-founder Andreas Martsman and the IP professional, Legal advisor of Oxeon Caroline Pamp are interviewed by the Communication Manager of the European IP Helpdesk Stephanie Weber about the extraordinary journey for this award-winning company and its materials, requiring a special blend of business planning, IP strategy and creativity.
