As in previous years, the renowned Techtextil and Avantex Innovation Awards will be given on the occasion of the Techtextil trade fair in Frankfurt am Main, which this year takes place from 11 to 13 June.  

“Techtextil is the world’s leading trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, and the industry’s most important innovation platform. New ideas, unconventional thinking and future-oriented visions in the field of technical textiles are welcome there”, says Michael Jänecke, Brand Management Director, Technical Textiles / Techtextil.

“With the biennial Techtextil and Avantex Innovation Awards, we not only honour these new developments but also promote the dialogue between developers, manufacturers and users in all fields of textile research and practice.”

The closing date for receipt of projects is 11 March 2013. The competitions for the awards are open to all developments completed after 1 July 2011, which have not won any other award. Entries are invited from companies, institutes, universities, polytechnics and individuals from all around the world. All award-winning projects will be presented at a special exhibition at Techtextil.

The Techtextil Innovation Award is given in the following categories: Research, New Materials, Products, Technologies and Applications. The projects must be relevant to the production or use of technical textiles, nonwovens or textile-reinforced materials.

The Avantex Innovation Award is presented for new developments, fashion aspects, new technologies and innovations in the field of functional apparel.
