“On behalf of the whole jury, I want to thank all the applicants. We will now start going through the applications and expect to find innovative solutions that really blow our minds. I’m sure we will end up with a great set of finalists,” says Eva Petursson, chairman of the Swedish Steel Prize jury and head of SSAB’s strategic R&D.
