In order to have an integrated approach to natural fibre development, the workshop will provide a common plateform for all stakeholders to share perspectives and identify areas for collaborative R&D in natural fibres. The fibre specific challenges and opportunities will be discussed threadbare and the way forward will be drawn. In order to initiate collaborative R&D, the fibre specific groups of complementary institutions and industry partners will be formed which will be part of Natural Fibre Consortium. Also, R&D plan will be outlined and possible funding agencies will be identified.
