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. Aliancys 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).
