Swedish Steel Prize 2019 Is Now Open For Entry

The Swedish Steel Prize is an award for ideas and products that have an impact on future steel solutions, and it attracts competitors from across the world.

Applications are now being accepted for the Swedish Steel Prize 2019, the steel industry’s most prestigious award, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

The Swedish Steel Prize is an award for ideas and products that have an impact on future steel solutions, and it attracts competitors from across the world. It will be awarded on Nov. 14 in Stockholm, Sweden, as part of the Swedish Steel Prize 2019 event. Applications are now being accepted.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Swedish Steel Prize. 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. 

Last year’s winner, was Mantella S.r.l. from Italy, recognized for the company’s innovative Stratosphere 3.0 rear tipping semi-trailer, which delivers outstanding performance that goes far beyond current offerings on the market.

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 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,” explained Eva Petursson, chair of the Swedish Steel Prize jury and head of SSAB’s research and innovation.

The winner of the Swedish Steel Prize receives a diploma, a statuette by the sculptor Jörg Jeschke and intense media exposure. In conjunction with the Swedish Steel Prize event, SSAB also will` make a SEK 100,000 (approximately $10,600 U.S.) donation to charity.

For the full rules, to read about previous finalists and to apply, competitors can go to www.steelprize.com/apply. All applications must be received before the deadline of August 15th for consideration.
