Student project nominated for Swedish Student Innovation Award

Lovisa Strömsholm och Stina Relfsson, recent graduates of our bachelor programme in Innovation Engineering, are among three finalists nominated to receive the Swedish Student Innovation Award 2012.  

Lovisa Strömsholm och Stina Relfsson, nominated for the Swedish Student Innovation Award 2012 for their project, Vilosten, have developed a new method and a new kind of material for producing more personal and more affordable headstones. The headstones offer the look and feel of real stone, but enable more advanced shapes and cost significantly less to produce. The method also reduces headstone weight by 50%, making headstones easier to handle and minimising risk of injury.

“It feels great to be recognized,” said Lovisa Strömsholm och Stina Relfsson, who have founded a company and plan to begin selling their product early next year. “If we win, we plan to invest in production equipment and a field trip to one of Europe’s largest cemeteries in Germany.

The project, named Best Graduate Project at our institution earlier this year, competes for the honour as well as for 100,000 SEK in award money. The award was established by Swedish business magazine Veckans Affärer and technical consulting company ÅF. The winners will be presented tomorrow, November 14, in Stockholm.
