AOC sponsors the SMC BMC Design Award 201728 July 2016
Both SMC and BMC are composite materials used in a broad variety of end use markets and applications. In order to give young engineers the opportunity to gain experience in designing with these versatile materials, the European Alliance for SMC BMC has launched a Design Competition. AOC is proud to be one of the sponsors of the SMC BMC Design Award 2017.
The SMC BMC Design Award 2017 is the 1st international Design Competition, organized by the European Alliance for SMC BMC. Its intent is to recognize and promote design excellence across industries. The Design Competition is open for design students and young design professionals (less than 3 years of experience), with the specific challenge to use SMC and BMC materials in novel applications and/ or for demonstrating novel functionalities.
The SMC BMC Design Award 2017 reinforces that SMC and BMC are innovative, versatile, cost effective and safe materials, used in products that bring significant benefits to individual consumers and society.
Innovations entered for the SMC BMC Design Award 2017 will be judged by an independent expert jury. The first price of this Design Competition (Gold Award) represents a monetary value of €10.000. It will be presented to the winner of the SMC BMC Design Award 2017 during a ceremony on 19/21 September 2017 at the Composites Europe trade show in Stuttgart (Germany). More details on the award can be found through http://smcbmc-europe.org/award.
“The SMC BMC Design Award 2017 offers participants an opportunity to promote their SMC BMC innovations across Europe and obtain broad public exposure”, reinforces Fons Harbers, Marketing & Sales Director at AOC. “We are very proud that AOC is one of the sponsors of this Design Competition. We truly believe that creating new applications and designs in SMC and BMC can bring value both to individual consumers and the composites industry.”
