Global Change Award 2016

 

In March 2016 we won the H&M Global Change Award

This was awarded for the efforts of University of Helsinki (Alistair King, Arno Parviainen & Ilkka Kilpeläinen) in the ionic liquid design, Aalto University (Michael Hummel, Anne Michud, Shirin Asaadi, Pirjo Kääriäinen, Marjaana Tanttu & Herbert Sixta) for the fibre-spinning technology development and VTT (Ali Harlin) for provision of recycled cotton to demonstrate the potential application of this technology within a circular economy concept.

The award was given by HRH Crown Princess Victoria of the Kingdom of Sweden. Unfortunately none of us from Helsinki were available to attend the award ceremony.
