European Flexible Polyurethane Foam Awards 2017



Proud of your company? Enter the European Flexible PU foam Award!

Last year, the first edition of the European Flexible Polyurethane Foam Awards was warmly welcomed in the industry. EUROPUR and Urethanes Technology International therefore decided to jointly present an Innovation Award again this year.

This is an open contest and you are herewith invited to submit entries before 20 April 2017. The Award itself will be presented on 7 June during our annual conference.

Which award?

The Innovation Award will recognize an innovation relating to the production or use of flexible polyurethane foam that has been on the market no longer than 24 months by the date of submission of the entry. For this award, innovation is to be understood in the broad sense. It can for example relate to novel raw materials, increased productivity, improved product stewardship or the use of flexible PU foam in new application.

Who can submit entries?

Entries can be submitted by any raw material suppliers, machinery manufacturers, foam producers or manufacturers of products containing flexible PU foam, whether they are EUROPUR or EURO-MOULDERS members or not.

What is the process?

This year, it will be the participants of the annual conference that will have the greatest say in selecting the winner of the awards.

A Jury composed of representatives of the Board of Directors of EUROPUR, the Chairs of our Working Groups and a representative of Urethanes Technology International will shortlist 3 of the entries received. The Jury will also vote on who they think should win, their vote corresponding to 30% of the total vote.

Shortlisted companies will present their innovation to the participants of the conference on 7 June, who will be asked to designate the winner. Their vote will count for 70% of the total.

The results will be announced and the Award presented at the end of the afternoon on 7 June.

 What can you win?

The Award winner will receive a full-page of free advertising in Urethanes Technology and be recognized during our annual conference taking place in Milan on 7 June 2017 in front of representatives of the flexible polyurethane foam industry from all over Europe.
