Swedish Steel Prize 2019
Applications are being accepted for the Swedish Steel Prize, the only international award for engineers in the steel industry which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2019.
Recognising ideas and products that have an impact on future steel solutions, the prize attracts competitors from all over the world. Over the past two decades, the award has inspired creative engineers, designers and inventors to utilize the endless potential of steel to change our world for the better.
The Swedish Steel Prize is open to any individual, company or institution and is awarded to the method or product that best displays how the properties of the chosen grade of steel has contributed to a significant innovation.
All entries are assessed by an independent jury. Together they review each entry based on its level of innovation, creativity, sustainability, performance and competitiveness. Out of the box thinking as well as entries addressing the environment, digital solutions and new trends in the economy are especially encouraged.
The winner receives a certificate and a statuette created by the sculptor Jörg Jeschke.
Regional steel supplier SSAB will also be making a charitable donation of SEK 100,000 to charity to coincide with the event.
“The Swedish Steel Prize is a celebration of innovation and good engineering. We are looking for solutions that really push the limits of steel – alone or in a combination with another material – and with a sustainable or digital twist that can help make the world a better place,” explains Eva Petursson, Chair of the Swedish Steel Prize jury and head of SSAB’s research and innovation.
The 2019 awards ceremony will take place on 14 November in Stockholm, and potential applicants should visit www.steelprize.com/apply for entry information.
Applications close on 15 August.
