Ingemar Denbratt will receive the scholarship of SEK 250,000 for his successes in combustion-engine research, as well as his national and international cooperation with industry within the Combustion Engine Research Center (CERC) and various EU projects.
“Based on Denbratt’s highly substantial significance to the development of eco-friendly transportation, which has also been of particular benefit to the Swedish automotive industry, I believe that Ingemar Denbratt is a highly deserving and appropriate recipient of the Håkan Frisinger scholarship for 2012,” says Per Lövsund, Professor of Vehicle Safety and Head of Department of Applied Mechanics at the Chalmers University of Technology in his nomination.
Denbratt has been a driving force in the creation and scientific development of the national competency center in combustion-engine technology at Chalmers, CERC. The cutting-edge laboratories in combustion-engine technology developed by Denbratt have promoted cooperation with international scientists and the industry. In order to satisfy future demands for the development of eco-friendly drivelines, widespread initiatives are implemented in close dialog with the automotive industry, with a particular focus on hybrid solutions. The laboratories are of high strategic significance for both the automotive industry and Swedish sub-contractors.
The scholarship will be presented by the Håkan Frisinger Foundation at a seminar on April 4 at the house of William Chalmers. Photo:
