About the Journey to Automation (J2A) Awards 2020

European Rubber Journal remains committed to launching the Journey to Automation Awards initiative to recognise leading-edge projects in the field of automation and digital transformation in the tire industry. However, the J2A Awards will now proceed with a revised schedule.

This is, unfortunately, due to the cancellation of Tire Cologne, where the top projects were going to be presented. European Rubber Journal will now be featuring the shortlisted entries in the July issue of the magazine and will announce the winner in a special ERJ issue in September.

The J2A Awards programme has already received many excellent entries. In view of the new circumstances, the deadline for entries has been extended until 21 April. 

In line with the theme of Tire Cologne, the J2A Awards will recognise digital projects in the fields of tire distribution and retail as well as, of course, tire design and manufacture.

Judging will be by a team of experts brought together by the editorial teams at European Rubber Journal magazine in cooperation with US-based sister publications Tire Business and Rubber & Plastics News.
