With the Techtextil Innovation Award, Techtextil, International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens, will once again honour outstanding ideas in the field of technical textiles including, for the first time, ideas focusing on sustainability.
Companies and research institutes have already entered their projects for the renowned Techtextil Innovation Award. Techtextil (14 to 17 May 2019) will honour outstanding achievements in the following categories: research, new materials, products, technologies and, for the first time, applications or new developments in the field of sustainability. Entries for new ideas, visions and concepts have also been accepted and are under consideration.
Entries were invited from exhibitors of Techtextil 2019, as well as companies, institutes, universities, polytechnics and individuals not represented at the fair. According to the rules with February 18 slated as the last day of submission, the developments submitted should be shortly before being launched onto the market or, if already available on the market, not have been so for more than two years. Additionally, they may not have been chosen for any other award.
The Techtextil Innovation Award spotlights the latest developments, promotes unconventional thinking and intensifies the dialogue between research, manufacturers and users. To be selected by an international jury of experts, the award-wining developments will be shown to international trade visitors and journalists in a special exhibition. The awards will be presented to the winners during the opening ceremony on the first day of the fair.
At the same time, the concurrent Texprocess will honour new technologies and methods for processing textiles and flexible materials with the Texprocess Innovation Award for the fifth time running.
