11 Winners instead of 10

20th Anniversary of JEC Innovation Awards

The JEC Innovation Awards ceremony took place yesterday on the Agora stage during JEC World 2018 in in Paris Nord Villepinte for the 20th time. Eleven winning innovations were chosen, out of the thirty finalists that had been previously selected from more than 100 applications from all over the world. Selection is based on criteria like the level of involvement of the innovation’s partners in the value chain, the technical nature of the innovation, or its commercial applications. A new feature this year is that the jury revealed the winners during the ceremony, and the public could choose their favorite innovation before, during, and after the ceremony.
