On Wednesday, 4 February 2009, Niels Due Jensen, Chairman of the Board, and Olav Ballisager met with Nikolai Vammen, Mayor of Aarhus and Lauritz Holm-Nielsen, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Aarhus, at the City Hall of Aarhus.

Here they unveiled the Global Dialogue Prize – a prize that every second year will reward research and work promoting the global value dialogue.

Grundfos plays a prominent role in that connection as the main prize of DKK 500,000 will be sponsored by Grundfos in both 2009 and 2011.

Grundfos, the University of Aarhus and VisitAarhus Events co-operate about the dialogue project, Dialogue 09.

The prize will be presented for the first time in Musikhuset Aarhus at the end of 2009.
