Now we have completed the 2019 Young Global Center of Excellence in Advanced Steels.
We received the evaluation from the doctoral students, which is excellent.
This year, new steel industries have participated that have not been part of the program before. We have also expanded the geography to Värmland with Karlstad University and Uddeholm AB, as well as new participating universities, the University of Birmingham and the Technical University of Delft. This means that we are expanding the network of participating partners both within and outside Sweden's borders. Read more

SSAB’s line of hot- and cold-rolled Docol® automotive steel has received its Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification, the company reports.
The National Standard Body of India created the BIS certification in 2016 to support local industries in the Indian economy. As part of this move, many advanced high-strength steel grades, including Docol steel products, were subject to new regulations.
