15 companies and their partners will receive an Innovation Award at JEC Europe taking place on 11-13 March 2014 in Paris, France, for their innovations in composites.
“With over a hundred submissions from 28 countries, the success of the Innovation Awards Competition is in constant progress. Never have so many high-quality applications been received, making the selection a very rich and complex process. The diversity of the subjects presented by the candidates made it very difficult for the jury of composites experts to select the 15 champions of composites innovations” said Mrs. Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO.
JEC state that the jury has selected the best composite breakthroughs, based on their technical interest, market potential, partnerships, financial and environmental impact, and originality. The decision to give prominence to these projects was based on their atypical nature and various noteworthy aspects.
The winners broach a wide expanse of domains from raw materials to design and processes and, of course, applications. They were selected from the following categories: Design, Simulation, Process, Aeronautics, Aircraft Interiors, Consumer Goods, Consumer Electronics, Medical, Pressure Vessels, Oil & Gas, Automotive, Wind Energy, Sustainability, Railways, and Marine.
The JEC Innovation Awards ceremony will highlight the 15 winning companies on stage on Tuesday 11 March at 4:45pm on the JEC Europe Show (Hall 7.3, at the Agora).
The event has been reshaped into a brand new ceremony and will be open to all exhibitors and visitors.
The JEC Innovation Awards Program is sponsored by CYTEC, JEC Composites Magazine, Aviation Week and Innovation & Industrie magazines.
The winners have been announced as the following.
