The iParasol project aims the R&D of a new generation of parasols, through the intelligent hybridization able to create its own dynamics between different advanced, versatile and highly complex technologies improving the quality of life of consumers, personalized, interactive, efficient, safe and sustainable. For the success of the project multi-disciplinary consortium with complementary skills was created, comprising two companies [FLEXEFELINAs and Têxteis Penedo] and two R&ID entities [CITEVE and CeNTI].
