IRO TTF primarily works on realization of student and staff mobility in the framework of Erasmus +, CEEPUS, Basileus, E-TEAM and other mobility programs.
Our potential is in the fact that we are the only scientific research and teaching institutions in the area of technical sciences, the field of textile technology in the Republic of Croatia, recognized internationally. It was accomplished by intensive and continuous work. TTF was included in the CEEPUS network since the academic year 1996/1997 and is one of the first components of the University, which has used this form of international cooperation. TTF had ERASMUS cooperation before Croatia signed the ERASMUS Charter in 2010. In the academic year 2008/2009 on the TTF was held one semester of AUTEX joint study, the E-TEAM; and the first exchange of foreign students was carried out in the academic year 2009/2010.
