“This year, the JEC Americas awards program offers a varied selection of worthy projects after a careful selection. From raw materials to softwares, along with a few applicative categories: automotive, aeronautics, consumer goods, the prizes cover the whole value chain. A few trends are made particularly clear here: mass production and accelerated rates are the main goals, with as much efficiency as possible and at lesser costs.” says Mrs Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO.
JEC Americas will be the stage where the Composites Industry truly demonstrates how these new materials push the limits of Innovation in every Industry. Excellence through Technology and Innovation will also be underlined during this year keynote speakers interventions, Ron Garan, Astronaut, Social Entrepreneur & Motivational Speaker and Byron Pipes, Director of Design and Simulation Technology Area from the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation Purdue University.
The JEC Innovation Awards ceremony will highlight 11 innovators and will take place on Tuesday June 2 at 6 pm
