The JEC Innovation Awards ceremony will highlight 18 innovators on stage and will take place on Tuesday March 10 at 05:00 pm on the JEC Europe Show & Conferences.

The strong demand around composite materials and all the emerging new composite applications have led JEC Group to reaffirm its position and adapt the JEC Europe trade show to the Industry’s growth. For the first time, the upcoming JEC Europe Composites Show & Conferences will occupy three levels at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, Pavilion 7 from Tuesday, March 10 to Thursday, March 12, 2015.

 

Bigger than ever, the Show will present innovations from the 35 industrial segments, from raw material producers to end-user markets and will promote knowledge and networking worldwide. “JEC Group strategy is entirely focused on promoting Knowledge and activating quality networks. Thanks to our three other American and Asian platforms, we are able to mobilize a real international network, from all the regions” said Mrs. Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO.

 

FOCUS : A rich JEC Innovation Awards edition to promote Composites breakthroughs

In addition to the Innovative Corner designed to promote the industry’s innovations, JEC Group also rewards very innovative players in composites. The JEC Innovation Awards jury has selected the best composite innovations, based on their technical interest, market potential, partnerships, financial & environmental impact and originality.

 

This year, 18 companies and their partners will receive an award during the ceremony. “For this edition, we have received more than 80 applications from 20 different countries. This confirms that JEC Innovation Awards has become a reference in many industrial sectors. Winning one of them establishes the expertise of the selected companies and projects on an international basis” adds Mrs. Frédérique Mutel.

 

The JEC Innovation Awards ceremony will highlight 18 innovators on stage and will take place on Tuesday March 10 at 05:00 pm on the JEC Europe Show & Conferences (Paris Expo Porte de Versailles (France) Hall 7.3, at the Agora).

All exhibitors and visitors are welcome to attend the ceremony.

The JEC Innovation Awards Program is sponsored by CYTEC and supported by JEC Composites Magazine and Aviation Week.
