About this event

JEC Composites Innovation Awards Ceremony

In 2022, the JEC Composites Innovation Awards ceremony will be held on April 26th in Paris, with Mr Denis Granger - Head of Sales Europe of Kordsa, JEC Group representatives, the jury members, and the 30 finalists, live from the Palais des Congrès Studio B.

A fuel for the composites industry

Each year, since its creation more than 20 years ago, the JEC Composites Innovation Awards celebrate successful projects and cooperation between players of the composites industry. The competition has especially shined a light on some 203 companies and 499 partners, awarding them for the excellence of their composite innovations.

Innovation is the essence of the industry – each year it opens new doors and builds the path towards our future. More than just an award ceremony, the JEC Composites Innovation Awards are an opportunity to foster inspiration and cooperation between actors of the whole value chain: to showcase some excellent but possibly undisclosed projects on a global stage and to boost the enthusiasm of an expert audience always eager to uncover new horizons and create business opportunities.

During the ceremony the jury will name 10 winners, one per category, rewarded for their innovative solutions, processes and products.
