About the Ekeberg Prize:
The Ekeberg Prize is awarded to the lead author(s) of the published paper or patent that is judged to have made the greatest contribution to understanding the processing, properties or applications of tantalum. The prize is sponsored by the T.I.C. and is central to its efforts to publicise the many exceptional benefits afforded by this element.
The long-term future of the tantalum market will depend on technology-driven innovations and winners of the Ekeberg Prize are acknowledged as true leaders in this field. The lead author(s) will be invited to give a presentation on their work at a General Assembly, where they will also receive a medal made of tantalum and a certificate of award presented by the T.I.C. President. They will also be interviewed in our quarterly newsletter, the Bulletin. For more information visit https://www.tanb.org/view/prize
