From 28 April to 9 May 2022 in Paris, France, the 121st Concours Lépine took place – a competition for the most original and useful inventions. This time, the Newex project team submitted an invention entitled “Active segment of a plasticizing assembly of the single-screw extruder”, whose authors were Prof. Janusz Sikora and M.Sc. Łukasz Majewski (Polish Patent No. 235891). After interviewing the authors, the international jury awarded the solution developed under the Newex project with a silver medal. It is already the 4th awarded solution created during this project. We wish you further success.
