ACIMIT Awards Student Grants, Publishes Textbooks

The Milan-based ACIMIT Foundation has presented 10 grants to 22 students from four Italian colleges of textile technology. The colleges are recent recipients of the annual ACIMIT Foundation Awards for research into textile machinery-related issues.

Alberto M. Saachi, chairman of the Italian Association of Textile Machinery Producers (ACIMIT), presented the grants to the students during a special ceremony.

The ACIMIT Foundation also has published and distributed four textbooks covering cotton and wool spinning, weaving, knitwear and finishing to colleges of textile technology. A fifth book on chemical fiber processing technology is scheduled for distribution during the next academic year. The books have been translated into English and have been distributed on a CD-ROM to foreign institutes and universities. They also are being translated into Chinese for distribution to Chinese institutes and universities.
