AVK is inviting submissions for its 2019 Innovation Awards.
There are three categories:
The Innovation Awards aim to promote the development of new products, components and applications using fibre reinforced plastics (FRPs) as well as new procedures and processes for manufacturing FRP products. A further award will also be presented to universities and institutes for outstanding work in the area of scientific and research. Sustainability is an important aspect of each submission considered by the judges.
The AVK Innovation Awards aim to recognise both the innovations and the people and organisations responsible for them with the goal of raising public awareness of the achievements of the sector as a whole. The awards ceremony will take place during the Composites Europe trade show in Stuttgart on 10-12 September 2019.
The closing date for submission documents is 29 March 2019. Further information is available here: https://www.avk-tv.de/innovationaward.php.
