In 2019, 30 finalists have been selected by an international jury of experts from more than a hundred applications for the JEC Innovation Awards. They compete in 10 categories, among which the new 3D printing one. “The JEC Innovation Awards programme is emblematic and recognises pioneers in composite innovation. 3D printing plays a new role in our industry,” said Franck GLOWACZ, Innovation Content Leader at JEC Group.

“The combination of lightweight, resistant materials that allow great design freedom, with a technology that allows complex shapes, is of interest to manufacturers. Many manufacturers have started using it to print automotive parts, aircraft parts, or building walls. Due to the very high level of the nominees, the JEC Innovation Awards ceremony should be very rich.”

Celebrating collaboration

JEC Innovation Awards celebrate the fruitful cooperation between players of the composite community. Over the past 15 years, the JEC Innovation Awards have brought in 1,800 companies worldwide. 177 companies and 433 partners have been rewarded for the excellence of their composite innovations.

The JEC Innovation Awards reward composites champions, based on criteria such as partner involvement in the value chain, technicality or commercial applications of innovations. The JEC Innovation Awards ceremony will take place on 13 March at the Agora stage of the JEC World 2019 exhibition.
