The LEATECH master's course to train new tanning professionals

To train new tanning professionals able to face the challenges of sustainability. This is the aim of the inter-university master’s degree LEATECH (Innovative Technologies for Leather) supported by COTANCE. The project is led by the A3 Leather Innovation Centre – UdL of the Igualada Campus (Spain) which is joined by ITECH University (France), EGE University (Turkey) and CIATEC (Mexico).

Training new tanning professionals

Different tanning realities and countries are ready to pool their knowledge and experience in the tanning field. The LEATECH Master’s programme aims to train the professionals of the future in the leather sector, which “is going through a moment of great technological change”.
