This study was covered by the SIZING-SUDOE project, a co-financed project involving also Spain and the Southern of France.
The SIZING-SUDOE was developed to achieve the following objectives:
- Identify specific needs of the clothing industry and fashion sector in the SUDOE region, regarding the 3D anthropometric measures;
- Complete and update anthropometric studies lead by SUDOE regions to provide comparable information between regions;
- Knowledge transfer to businesses and methodologies for the use and exploitation of 3D databases and to develop a trans-regional advisory service in the operation and application of these data;
- Create a transnational network of services from institutions working together on the creation of knowledge and innovation.
