The AVK is looking for the best innovations in the field of fibre-reinforced plastics (FRP) / composites

The German Federation of Reinforced Plastics (AVK) is inviting submissions for the AVK Innovation Award 2024 in fibre-reinforced plastics / composites, covering the following 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 the companies/institutions 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 28th March 2024. Further details and assessment criteria can be found at

The award ceremony will be held during the JEC Forum DACH event in Stuttgart, Germany (22-23th October 2024).
