Prize money, getting published, and the honour of winning for Georg Wolgast, Hampus Månefjord, Edvard Johansson, Alexander Israelsson and Casimir Ehrenborg, alongside supervisors Anders Sunesson and Jakob Helander.
As mentioned here previously, student team 'Gerhards Grabbar' reached the finals in Vancouver on the 21st of July with their low-power BAN-antenna system and, at the awards ceremony of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, the team was happy to discover that they had won first prize.
Details can be found in a previous EIT news article (search for "Gerhards Grabbar" in the news archive).
When asked if everything had gone according to plan, Edvard Johansson and Georg Wolgast exclaim ”Not at all! We'd reached the finals and thought that had been enough!” ”After having seen the other teams we definitely didn't think we'd win as they were all so impressive”.
