GM establishes Swedish R&D office
Trollhättan, Sweden – General Motors Corporation will open a new science office in Trollhättan, Sweden that will expand its advanced technical work portfolio in the areas of vehicle safety, emissions and advanced manufacturing.
The new Science Office will develop centres of expertise in Sweden and will coordinate all R&D activities and projects. The US$26 million agreement begins in 2005 and will extend through at least 2008. The new commitment between the Swedish government and GM will complement existing Swedish government R&D programs. Trollhättan is also home to Saab, which is wholly owned by GM.
