Date: March 15, 2012, 12.00-17.00
Place: The Chalmers House, Södra Hamngatan 11 (South Harbour Street 11), Göteborg.

The Håkan Frisinger Foundation for Transportation Research has decided to award its scholarship for 2011 to Professor Annika Stensson Trigell of the Royal Institute of Technology. The scholarship will be presented to Annika Stensson Trigell for her scientific excellence in automotive dynamics, initiating and heading the transport platform at the Royal Institute of Technology, and coordinating the Green Vehicle’s National University Programme in collaboration with the Swedish automotive industry.

As a complement to the Award Ceremony we are pleased to present seminars with invited lecturers. We hope that these seminars will give a good overview of the award winner’s transport research area.
