Award for the innovation in the composites industry

The German federation of reinforced plastics, AVK, has published the call for the AVK Innovation Award 2020. AVK is inviting submissions in fibre-reinforced plastics/composites, covering the categories: innovative products/components or applications; innovative procedures/processes; research and science.


One goal of the AVK Innovation Award is to promote new products/components and applications made from fibre-reinforced plastics (FRP) and to promote new processes and methods for the manufacturing of FRP products. A further award is given to universities, colleges and institutes for outstanding work in science and research. In each of the categories special emphasis will be placed on the issue of sustainability.


Another goal of the AVK Innovation Award is to give prominence to the innovations and also to the individuals and companies/institutions that are behind them, thus publicising their performance throughout the industry. The submissions will be evaluated by a jury of experts from the composites sector. The submission deadline for the application documents is March 31, 2020. The award ceremony will be held during the Composites Europe trade fair (November 10-12, 2020).
