Applications are now open for the Swedish Steel Prize 2019, the steel industry’s most prestigious award, recognising ideas and products that have an impact on future steel solutions and attracting competitors from across the world. Applications must be submitted before 15th August, and the prize will be awarded on 14th November in Stockholm, Sweden.

This year marks the prize’s 20th anniversary. Over the past two decades, the award has inspired creative designers to utilise the endless potential of steel to change the world for the better.

The 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.

The independent jury assesses all entries on innovation, creativity, sustainability, performance and competitiveness. Out-of-the-box thinking is especially encouraged, as well as entries addressing the environment, digital solutions and new trends in the economy.

“The Swedish Steel Prize is a celebration of innovation and good engineering,” says Eva Petursson, head of research and innovation at Nordic/American steel company SSAB and Chair of the Swedish Steel Prize jury. “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.”

The prize ceremony takes place at the end of a two-day event at which participants from around the world meet to learn about new steel technologies, be inspired, network with peers and celebrate innovation. The winner will receive a diploma, a statuette by sculptor Jörg Jeschke and worldwide media exposure.
