Last year a team from Aalto University won the Global Change Award (GCA), which is an innovation challenge organized by H&M foundation. Aalto’s winning proposal was about “Making waste cotton new” with Ioncell-F technology. Since then, Ioncell-F process has been further developed with GCA prize and in T2C project. In this year's awards Pirjo Kääriäinen from Aalto’s GCA winning team and Essi Karell from T2C exhibited a garment to demonstrate the progress made during the past year.

The garment was also shown 3 April in H&M Change Makers Lab at Fotografiska, Stockholm. The event brought together around 250 change makers (including partners, innovators, governments, investors, trade unions, NGO's and other brands) to challenge the existing practices of the fashion industry and discuss about new technologies and material recycling.
