There’s just two weeks left to apply for the ‘Bio-based Material of the Year 2017’ innovation award, to be presented at the International Conference on Bio-based Materials, 10-11 May 2017, in Cologne, Germany.

The prestigious innovation award will be awarded for the tenth time. The focus of the award is on bio-based materials in a new specific application, which have had (or will have) a market launch in 2016 or 2017.

The advisory board will make a preselection of all applications and narrow the field down to six finalists offering new materials and products. The final decision will be made by the conference participants after the nominees have presented their innovations.

The six nominated products will be included in intensive marketing and press campaigns prior to the conference and weeks after the event. Each of the candidates will get one free two-day ticket plus further tickets at a discounted rate.
