Default 34 innovations are PACE finalists

Automotive News
October 12, 2013 - 12:01 am ET Thirty-four innovations, in such diverse areas as all-wheel drive, adhesives and infotainment, are finalists for the 2014 Automotive News PACE Awards.

The awards, now in their 20th year, honor suppliers' innovations in products, manufacturing process and capital equipment, and information technology.

In the coming months, the finalists will host teams of independent PACE judges, who are experts from industry, academia and business. The judges will evaluate the innovations for originality and market impact.
Next spring, information on the finalists' innovations will be featured in issues off Automotive News.

Winners will be announced April 7 at the Max M. Fisher Music Center in Detroit, kicking off SAE World Congress week.

The awards are sponsored by EY, the new name for Ernst & Young; the Transportation Research Center Inc.; and Automotive News. SAE International and the Original Equipment Suppliers Association provide further support.
