JEC Group Presents The JEC TV Podcast
Every Month A New Edition
JEC Group has launched its own podcast series in March. Each month JEC TV Podcast brings the latest news in the world of composites and their applications. The ten-minute video broadcast is hosted by Frédéric Reux, the editor in chief of the JEC Composites Magazine. Segments include Sports and composites, the History of composites, Startup news, and interviews of professors and top-executives of composites firms.
“The goal of the JEC TV Podcasts is to raise awareness of composites to a broader audience that goes beyond the usual experts and engineers that work with them every day. Composites are part of our everyday life and essential in many industries. Their share will grow even more future, especially in the mobility sector where the need for lighter and more resistants materials is growing. We hope this new program will help developping the composites penetration in many industries”, says Frederic Reux, Editor in chief JEC Group.
