Ved den årlige Grundfospris-fest mødes universiteter og erhvervsliv for at fejre en lovende yngre forsker og udforske Grundfos' teknologiske verden.

Den 11. november byder Fonden 3-400 deltagere til prisfest i Grundfos’ nye eventhal:

Prisuddelingen byder på spændende keynotes:

  • Statsminister Mette Frederiksen (endelig bekræftelse afventer)
  • Professor Mads Albertsen, Aalborg Universitet

Desuden arrangeres EXPO og networking med udvalgte forskningprojekter og partnere:

Musikalsk underholdning af Christian Juncker

Screening af drama-dokumentaren INTO DUST

Prisceremonien er åben for medierne og Fonden forbeholder sig ret til at benytte fotos og video fra ceremonien i både trykte og digitale medier: Mere info i vores databehandlingspolitik.

Særlige site visits for studerende

Om formiddagen inden prisceremonien arrangeres site visits for studerende fra hele landet, fulgt af en netværksfrokost hvor det er muligt at fortsætte samtalen med relevante Grundfos-ansatte. Alle site visits foregår på engelsk.

Site visit options (students only):
Sustainability in Production Processes

Sustainability is one of Grundfos’ core values: Join this site visit to see a selection of the environmental projects in energy and wastewater management. At the Energy Central you will see how Grundfos and Bjerringbro Heating Central exchange and store energy. You will also visit the wastewater treatment plant and the CR factory, where you can explore various energy and water projects using Grundfos Technologies.

Simulation Driven Development

On this tour, we invite you into Grundfos’ otherwise secret development department. It is a unique opportunity for gaining insights into the newest engineering methods in pump design and product development. Discover how Grundfos uses the latest methods within 3D printing, simulations and tests to develop world-class pumps. You can experience everything first-hand, and your guides are the engineers and technicians who use the methods on a daily basis.

Test and validation within Product Development

If you are interested in the quality aspects of product development, this is the tour for you. We will invite you into our test centre where you can learn about testing and validation of our new products – from the earliest concepts to the final product validation. You can experience one of Europe’s most sophisticated sound and vibration labs. Your guides will be dedicated Grundfos staff who can tell you all about their daily work and the methodologies they use.

Smart Factory

Join an exclusive visit to Grundfos’ Smart Factory (previously Factory of the Future). The initiative has successfully developed many digital tools and solutions from now 40 completed projects. This has resulted in 1300+ implementations across the global production with significant impact on savings, lead time and operation performance improvement.

Digitalisation and Digital Solutions

Experience some of the smart pumps and solutions developed for use in a digitalised world – both in our smart and connected homes and commercial buildings and industry – as well as our visions for how digitalisation could help us solve future challenges both inside on the factory floor and outside, dealing with the effects of climate change. We will also invite you to the digital powerhouse in Grundfos, where digital solutions and services are developed and tested in an exciting new collaborative environment. During this tour, you will have the opportunity to interact with various project teams who shape the digital solutions.

Homegrown Electronics

Did you know that one of the world’s most advanced electronics factories lies right under your nose in Bjerringbro? Probably not. The electronic components for our intelligent pumps are made here rather than bought from an external supplier, as Grundfos has always been a company that prioritises keeping important technological skills in-house. The tour will take you through Grundfos’ state-of-the-art production floor, where the intelligent motor controls for our energy efficient pumps are made. Grundfos is aiming for full traceability of all products, and the electronics factory is a key driver of this goal. You will have a chance to meet and discuss with both technicians, developers and production staff.

Water Technologies – Systems and Sensors

Visit a unique place where thoughts, business opportunities and ideas within water treatment merge into real solutions. On this tour, you will be able to see and touch both Water treatment technologies, Intelligent water systems, and Live test facilities. Our engaged and interdisciplinary staff members who specify, design, build, test and validate the solutions are ready to present our running projects and explain about the activities.
