This year, 10 companies and their partners will receive an award at JEC Europe, Porte de Versaille in Paris, France, next week, for their composites innovations.
According to JEC, the jury has selected the best composite breakthroughs, based on their technical interest, market potential, partnerships, financial & environmental impact and originality. The decision to give prominence to these projects was based on their atypical nature and various noteworthy aspects.
In 2013, the winners were selected from the following categories: Raw materials, Thermoplastics, Multifunctional materials, Machining & Tool, Building & Construction, Aeronautics, Automotive, Wind Energy, Sports & Leisure and a Special prize.
The JEC Innovation Awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday March 12 at 5:00 pm at the Agora, within the show and will be open to all exhibitors and visitors. The ceremony is sponsored by CYTEC, JEC Composites Magazine, Aviation Week and Innovation & Industry.
