Applications Invited for Swedish Steel Prize 2012

The applications are now invited for the Swedish Steel Prize 2012, an international prize that honors innovations in high strength steels. The main objective of the prize is to motivate and spread awareness about high strength steels and also the possibilities they offer to produce safer, lighter and more eco-friendly products.

The final date for submission of applications is August 15, 2012 and the winner will be declared in November during a ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden. The winner will be offered SEK 100,000.

The competition has been taking place since 1999 and a total of approximately 700 entries have been submitted over the years. The percentage of worldwide contributions has also improved. In 2011, John Deere, an American firm, received the Swedish Steel Prize 2012 for its harvester made of high strength steel, which enhances the productivity and meets strict environmental requirements.

The panel of judges include KG Ramström, Chief Technical Officer at SSAB; Jan-Olof Sperle, professor at Royal College of Technology and Uppsala University; Jan-Gunnar Persson, Professor Emeritus in Machine Design at Royal College of Technology; Claes Magnusson, professor in production technology at Kristianstad University; Sture Hogmark Professor Emeritus in materials science and tribology, Uppsala University; and Lennart Bergqvist, management consultant at LBQ Consulting.
