The Håkan Frisinger Award 2016
Professor Louise Olsson, Head of the Chemical Engineering division, Chalmers, Gothenburg, Sweden

The Håkan Frisinger award 2016

The Håkan Frisinger Foundation for Transportation Research has awarded its 2016 scholarship of SEK 250,000 to Professor Louise Olsson. Louise Olsson is a Professor at the division of Chemical Engineering, where she also is the manager for the Chemical engineering division.

Prof. Olsson and her group are also associated with Competence Centre for Catalysis (KCK). Her research group works with catalysis for emission cleaning and alternative fuel production. More specifically, the aim is to combine experiments and kinetic modelling for increasing the fundamental understanding of the reactions occurring on the catalytic surfaces and also to be able to predict the conversion after the catalyst. Louise group basic science projects are combined with applied projects together with industry.

The scholarship was awarded by the Håkan Frisinger Foundation at a seminar jointly organised by the University of Gothenburg, Chalmers and the VREF held on:

  • Time: 11 May, 2017, from 13.15 to 16.00

Global Mobility Research

This Meeting of the Minds' blog monthly releases interviews of global transportation researchers from the VREF's Future Urban Transport Program Network.


The VREF invites PhD students and early stage researchers to apply for a Study Visit Grant to be supported with up to SEK 30 000.

The invitation is now closed.

Each year the Håkan Frisinger Foundation for Transportation Research awards a scholarship to a prominent researcher.
