Hyper Island nominated to the Innovation Award 2008

Hooray! We are proud to announce that the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK has nominated Hyper Island for the Innovation Award 2008.

In 2006 they introduced a Life Time Achivement Award which was presented to Ingvar Kamprad at IKEA and an Innovation Award which was given to Niklas Zennström at Skype. Now The Swedish Chamber of Commerce is preparing a new profile launch today and in connection with this event the Chamber network has selected and put forward a list of nominees from which the winner will be announced at the Chamber profile launch tonight. The nominees are besides Hyper Island the construction company Skanska and Nordic Marine Living AB in cooperation with Jonas Wagell Architecture.

Hyper Island has been nominated for its unique education methods which seek to stimulate creativity and enable the students’ individual development. ”For more than thirteen years, the learning method at Hyper Island has been a global success story”.

- We are happy to be nominated for something that we know and do well. Innovatie education is the core business of Hyper Island. We have been sending our students for internships and work in the UK for thirteen years now, so it is great to be recognized for our work as a interactive bridge between the UK and Sweden. There will be more, says Mattias Hansson, CEO, Hyper Island.
