SMC BMC DESIGN AWARD 2019 - AWARD CEREMONY
September 10, 2019
AT THE COMPOSITES EUROPE SHOW IN SUTTGART (GERMANY) THE FINALISTS OF THE SMC BMC DESIGN AWARD WILL PRESENT THEIR PROJECT TO THE COMPOSITES WORLD. THEY WILL ALSO RECEIVE THEIR AWARD FROM THE JURY CHAIRMAN JOAN MONTOBBIO.
When visiting the Composites Europe Show in Stuttgart, we would be pleased to welcome you during the SMC BMC Design Award Ceremony planned on Tuesday 10 September (12:30 – 13:30 @Lightweight Technology Forum).
The SMC BMC Design Award 2019 was focused on developing new ideas and product solutions for SMC and BMC in Sustainable Mobility. Student teams from all over Europe sent in a large number of project proposals. These were reviewed in detail by the Jury, against the key selection criteria Creativity, End-user functionality, Feasibility in SMC BMC, and a Minimum of 4 SMC BMC performance criteria used.
The Jury was very happy with the quality of the projects, and the capability of some of the teams to think out-of-the box. While some teams spent a lot of time on the design and manufacture-ability in SMC BMC, others emphasized more the consumer use and marketing aspects.
After a thorough review of the projects, the following three were selected as finalists :
- Alle (ESAD, Portugal) from Maria-João Melo team
- SEV Storage (TU Delft, Netherlands) from Finn Kooijman
- Rayboard (ESAD, Portugal) from Nídia Rodrigues team
