As part of the eMove360° Europe 2021 International Trade Fair for Mobility 4.0 electrically networked-autonomous (16th to 18th November) last night, the winners of the 19th MATERIALICA Design + Technology Award announced. The expert jury had selected the most innovative and sustainable products and projects as the finalists of this renowned prize. He is the only one in the world to be positioned at the interface of design, technology and materials.
It was again a great pleasure to discuss the consistently very high-quality contributions virtually with my jury colleagues. The excellent submissions address solutions for sustainable mobility on the one hand, but also the careful use of resources in general on the other. As a trade fair committed to sustainability, we are thus sending an important signal, emphasizes Robert Metzger, Managing Director of MunichExpo GmbH and organizer of the award.
