Between Wednesday and Friday this week we were in Stockholm due to the University Steel Prize. When we arrived on Wednesday, we had some rehearsals to do before we went to Paul’s Haymarket for a very nice dinner (thank you Linda and Anna!).
Thursday was the big day. At 10:20 we entered the stage for the prize giving ceremony of the tremendous University Steel Prize, and there was so much excitement and happiness in the air! Here’s a Winner Interview movie. The day continued with fika, lunch, mingle, photographing and inspiring seminars presented by Jörgen Oom and Mike Walsh among others – such an amazing day! Later on, after some resting and dressing up, it was time for the award gala. We got to enjoy bubbles, a lovely three course dinner, music, dancing and entertainment, and the winner of the Swedish Steel Prize was announced too. Congratulations Kiruna Wagon from Sweden with the innovative solution Helix Dumper!
We didn’t stay too long on Friday. We got up to have some breakfast at the hotel and then we checked out and went home to Jönköping with the prizes: a Dala horse, a check of 20 000 SEK, a diploma and flowers. We really had an amazing time in Stockholm and we’re so grateful about the University Steel Prize that took us there!
