The Specialist Association Foamed Plastics and Polyurethanes (FSK), Germany, is inviting innovations from the world of polyurethanes for its annual awards programme.
The categories are Design and Construction, Technology and/or Process Engineering and Chemical Engineering.
European junior professionals, specialists, senior professionals and companies are invited to submit their innovative polyurethane developments. Both individuals and groups can apply. The originality of the submitted idea, product or process and the marketability and competitiveness of the new developments are key factors the judges are looking for. The awards are intended to support winners in making their innovations known to the industry and to establish them on the market.
