The National Research & Development Institute for Textiles and Leather, Bucharest was established in 1996, by the merging of the Textile Research Institute with the Leather-Footwear Research Institute. INCDTP develops RDI activities having a fundamental and applicative character, small and short series micro production, consultancy and technical assistance services: laboratory investigation and testing, quality management, certification and inspection, editing and publishing of specialty literature (the magazine “Industria Textila”, ISI rated , „Revista de Pielarie-Incaltaminte” [The Leather & Footwear Magazine], CNCSIS rated B+, books, manuals, catalogues and dictionaries).
The research activity is carried out as part of the national and European RDI programs. Within the national development programs, the research projects are developed in consortia that involve specialists from research institutes, universities and economic agents from the specific and connected domains: medicine, aeronautics, chemistry, engineering etc. At European level, INCDTP is actively involved as partner and coordinator in the RDI Programs: FP VII, Leonardo da Vinci, EUREKA, MANUNET, INTEREG IVB, etc.
The INCDTP investigation laboratories are accredited by RENAR and perform analyses and tests for textile products, garments, leather and footwear (about 100), for the purpose of preventing unfair competition, providing the competitiveness of the products in demand on the internal and external markets, subjected to increased development and performance. The product certification is an important element on the global market circulation and INCDTP has a consolidated infrastructure in this area, by means of the Textile and Leather Certification Bodies, the Textile and Leather Inspection Bodies.
INCDTP is part of European research structures: ERA - European Research Area, EURATEX - The European Apparel and Textile Organization, TEXTRANET - The European Network of Research Organizations in the field of Textiles, the Technology Platform for Textiles and Clothing, the Technology Platform for Women Scientists, INSME, IAFTCC, etc.
