The Swedish Steel Prize is an international prize. In essence, it can be won by anyone who has developed a product that includes advanced high strength steels as well as construction and wear-resistant steels or a method that expands the field of application for these steels.
The winners may thus be individual persons, companies or institutions.
The Swedish Steel Prize was awarded for the first time in 1999. It is an annual prize which is destined to encourage all of those who open new paths - be they large or small - towards development and improvement.
The winner of the prize receives a statuette by the artist Jörg Jeschke and a scholarship amounting to SEK 100 000.
