Any company involved in the use of composite materials can participate as a speaker at one of the six User Forums or by competing in the JEC Innovation Awards programme during the next JEC Composites Show.
The show will be on April 3-4-5, 2007, at the Porte de Versailles fairgrounds in Paris.
Once again in 2007, the JEC Group is organising six user forums that will be held during the JEC Composites Show in Paris to encourage dialogue between industrialists (raw material suppliers, processors, equipment manufacturers, etc.) and end-users of composite solutions. The presentations at these forums attract a targeted professional audience made up of users, processors, designers, consultants, engineers, journalists, and more. JEC are accepting proposals for presentations via their website.
The tenth JEC Innovation Programme is also open and will reward the best composite innovations in the following sectors: Aeronautics & Space, Construction, Ground Transport, Energy & Industry, Environment, Process and Sports & Leisure. Since it was created in 1998, this programme has singled out more than 70 companies (from the USA, Europe and Asia) and their 280 partners for innovation excellence. Its objective is to spot, promote, and reward the most effective composite solutions that create more value for end users. The selection criteria are technical excellence, partner-chain value, market potential, financial impact, and originality. The competition also serves to motivate the teams developing composite solutions and is an excellent opportunity to establish new professional contacts.
Applications should be sent via their website for vetting by a jury of international experts and journalists.
