MATERIALICA Design + Technology Award 2009
The world of materials is developing swiftly and becoming increasingly complex. Designers have known for a long time that the success of a product and its design also depends on the right choice of materials. Pioneering materials can provide functional, aesthetic and production-related impulses. At the same time, engineers and developers are inspired by design requirements to develop new materials and technologies.
To highlight this interrelation, to demonstrate the importance of materials for industrial design-oriented applications and to establish a platform for designers, material manufacturers, developers, engineers and producers for a get-together, MunichExpo has been organizing the MATERIALICA Design + Technology Award for six years. The main focal point of this award is on aerospace, automotive, engineering, sports and technical consumer goods.
For the first time, the Student Award career grant, which has been endowed since 2005 by MunichExpo Veranstaltungs GmbH, comes with prize money of 1,500 Euro. Students from the fields of design, engineering sciences, mechanical engineering, natural sciences or all other fields of study that incorporate topics such as material development, material applications or process engineering are invited to participate.
Regular deadline is 31 May 2009 for both the regular and student categories. Visit the site to learn more about the entry categories and guidelines.
