Yes, I had read this as well.. Not to get you down, but I think this was originally considered part of the "consolation prize" when Trollhattan lost out to Russelsheim. - tex "Saab Guy" <nothingnospamo.com> wrote in message news:20050826160234.6a709918.nothingnospamo.com... http://www.autoindustry.co.uk/news/industry_news/26-08-05_3 GM opens $26m Swedish science office 26th August 2005 General Motors will open a new science office in Trollh”ttan, Saab___s home town, that will expand its work 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 $26 million agreement begins in 2005 and will extend to at least 2008. "GM's extensive network of collaborators in Sweden including universities such as the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Chalmers University, as well as national laboratories and suppliers, is a result of Saab's outstanding work in building relationships. The Swedish government is giving us an excellent opportunity to continue to expand our global network of partners," said Alan Taub, executive director of Science at GM Research & Development laboratories in Warren, Michigan. "This is just a natural evolution of existing collaborative partnerships." Taub added that with the support of the Swedish government, Saab engineers will be able to dramatically increase their existing network and build on relationships as well as establish working partnerships with new suppliers and technology partners.
