Students visit TFL Academy in Italy
The education of future generations is very important to TFL. Therefore, TFL contributes
significantly to the support of local and international training institutes.
For the past 12 years TFL and the ICLT (Institute for Creative Leather Technologies),
University of Northampton, UK, have worked together. In May 2013, 18 students from the
University joined some students from the Italian High School for Tanning Technology, ITIS G.
Galilei, at TFL's site in Montebello for a 4-day workshop.
The workshop included theoretical and practical leather applications. The training involved
several presentations on TFL innovative systems followed by practical application in the labs
with a special focus on the ecological aspects involved in the leather manufacturing process.
On this occasion, both schools demonstrated their interest and wish to maintain and even
improve their cooperation in the coming years.
The TFL Academy is looking forward to continuing such training in order to support the
education of future generations of leather technicians, technologists and scientists.
