The bidding round for 2024 has been completed.

The AVK awards prizes for the best innovations in the field of fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) / composites

The categories:

– Innovative products/applications

– Innovative procedures/processes

– Research and science

One aim of the Innovation Award is to promote new products/components and applications made of fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) and to promote new methods and processes for manufacturing these FRP products. Another prize is awarded to universities, colleges and institutes for outstanding scientific work in research and science. In all categories, special emphasis is placed on the topic of “sustainability”.

A further aim is to honor the innovations and the companies/institutions behind them and thus present the performance of the entire composites industry to the public. The entries will be judged by a high-caliber jury of experts from the composites sector.

The award ceremony will take place on October 22, 2024 during the JEC Forum DACH in Stuttgart (22.-23.10.2024).
