The Håkan Frisinger Foundation for Transportation Research will be awarding
the scholarship for 2012 to Professor Ingemar Denbratt at Chalmers University
of Technology. 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 Chalmerska Huset. For more information and
